The National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA) of Morocco is an agricultural research institution working on research and technology transfer activities related to productivity improvements, competitiveness and sustainability of agricultural production and characterization, preservation and valorization of natural resources. INRA is an active partner of both international and regional organizations, mainly ICARDA, EC, ICGEG, CIMMYT, AARINENA, FARA, COI, ICRA, and others. Moreover, INRA is a member of several regional networks and maintains bilateral cooperation with several countries. The team of INRA developed a research program to assess the potential of antagonists of plant diseases (occurring in pear, grape, citrus, potato, tomato, cereal, corn and others) for their bio-control activities and their impact on plant growth as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR).
