The increasing frequency of dry periods in many regions of the world and the problems associated with salinity in irrigated areas frequently result in the consecutive occurrence of salinity on cultivated land. Currently, 50% of all irrigation schemes are affected by salinity. In salinity areas, the high levels of NaCl affect the plant development by altering its functional state. Several studies show successfully using the plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) to increase the plant resistance against salinity. These studies show the possibility of using PGPRs in order to reduce the undesirable effects of salinity.
