Higher plants continually compete with microbes to conserve their predominance within the particular niche. Plants have evolved constant relationships with a suite of microbes, known as the phytomicrobiome. The associates of phytomicrobiome exhibit symbiotic relationship. Plant-microbe and microbe-microbe interactions within the phytomicrobiome are carried out through the release of signalling compounds. Bacterial community within the phytomicrobiome communicates among themselves through quorum-sensing mechanism. Diversity, stability and resilience of microbial community in phytomicrobiome are the major determinants of plant health and productivity. Therefore, phytomicrobiome is under intensive investigation to improve our understanding of its strong effects on plant development, health and resistance to parasites. Exploration of the plant-microbe interactions within the phytomicrobiome is a promising avenue to improve crop productivity and agricultural sustainability. Understanding the regulation and relatedness of plant and microbial community may aid in engineering plants with improved pathogen resistance and novel symbiotic interactions. Comprehensive study of phytomicrobiome, especially the molecular signalling pathway, may provide new insights into the mechanism of plant disease management, successively inspiring new plant breeding strategies.
