Interpretive Summary: Emphasizing three of the most agriculturally significant abiotic challenges, namely drought stress, salinity stress, and phosphate stress, this chapter describes our current understanding of the specific mechanisms the root microbiome can employ to help boost plant fitness, and summarizes new methods through which the plant root microbiome has been leveraged in agricultural settings to reduce damage from abiotic stresses. These abiotic stresses significantly impact crop productivity in agricultural settings, especially for low income subsistence farmers.
