With the expanding population, the environment is changing greatly, and agriculture is one of the most exposed sectors to these changes and faces a number of challenges like pollution, pathogenic attack, salinity, drought, high and low temperature, and so on. All these challenges ultimately affect productivity. To overcome such issues, eco-friendly approaches are very vital. The use of fungi as biofertilizers is one emerging area which is getting greater attention as it is proving its importance by enhancing plant growth and productivity by diverse plant growth-promoting traits including production of phytohormones, siderophores, and hydrolytic enzymes; making available different nutrients; and protecting plants against pathogens. Further, fungi are also becoming a center of focus for the industrial sector as fungal enzymes play a chief role in industries and their requirement is at the top position and in fact their influence will be felt more in coming years. Thus, keeping in view the importance of fungi especially for the agriculture as well as industrial sector, the following chapter has been designed which will take into consideration the plant growth-promoting traits of fungi, role of fungi in abiotic stress tolerance, value-added products from fungi, use of fungal enzymes in diverse industries, and fungi as a source of various secondary metabolites.


Abiotic stress Fungal enzymes Plant growth promotion Secondary metabolites Value-added products
