Fungal Biotechnology for Agricultural Sustainability

About this Research Topic

Fungal biotechnology has opened-up new opportunities for the use of beneficial fungal communities that produce bioactive compounds and secondary metabolites useful for sustainable development of agriculture and related sectors. Having multifunctional plant growth-promoting (PGP) attributes, beneficial agriculturally important fungi (AIF) can be used for plant growth promotion and protection from phytopathogenic organisms through different PGP mechanisms. Metabolic engineering and synthetic biology of fungi also help to characterize diverse groups of potential bioactive compounds and secondary metabolites for sustainability.

This Research Topic aims to collect manuscripts (Original Research, Reviews, and Methods) that showcase the use of biotechnology to:
- identify and characterize AIF;
- characterize bioactive compounds and secondary metabolites useful for agricultural sustainability;
- exemplify and clarify the use of beneficial fungi as biofertilizers and biocontrol agents;
- elucidate potential biotechnological applications in agriculture, and allied sectors for sustainability.


Keywords: Fungal biotechnology, Agricultural sustainability, Beneficial fungal communities, Agriculturally important fungi


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
