Microorganisms (in particular PGPM) are promising for the development of effective and environmentally friendly microbiological plant growth regulators and antidotes based on them. The potential advantage of microorganisms is their versatility. They are simultaneously able to stimulate growth, suppress pathogens, increase fertility, destroy pesticides, and integrate into the rhizosphere biome, which prolongs their effect. Rhizospheric and endophytic microorganisms affect the absorption of nutrients by the plant, and their reaction to herbicides, drought, salinization, and pollution. However, the effectiveness of PGPM strongly depends on the circumstances in which they are used. Currently, new information appears on the compatibility of microbiological regulators with different agricultural practices. The combination of beneficial microorganisms with pesticide treatment is of interest since pesticides are widely used and are associated with environmental risks.
The effect of combining microbial stimulants or biopesticides with a variety of traditional and innovative agricultural practices, including herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, fertilizer, no-till, drip irrigation and others; microbiomes of soil, rhizosphere and phyllosphere during these agricultural practices; the potential for microbiological transformation and detoxification of pesticides; mitigating of pesticide pressure on plants by microbiological agents are scientific questions that are primarily discussed in this Special Issue. Additionally, the scientific contribution to the investigation of the crop-PGPM interactions under stress caused by unfavorable natural and anthropogenic factors is approved.
Original research manuscripts as well as reviews are welcome and interdisciplinary and field research is encouraged.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
