The destruction of soil soundness and the expansion of soil pollution are serious problems for both the environment and living organisms. For a long time, chemical fertilizers have been used in enormous quantities to increase crop yields and enhance crop productivity. This causes soil health to crumble. The current approaches to maintain and ameliorate soil health via Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) seems a possible alternate to chemical fertilizers. The application of PGPR is exponentially to rise in sustainable farming on account of its coherent and eco-friendly disposition. It is applied as alternative emanation to decline the utilization of fungicides, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Bio-fertilizers accelerate the entire growth and yield of vegetation in an ecofriendly manner. Rhizobia play considerable task in nitrogen fixation, augmentation and over all development of plants and crops. This review summarise information about Sesbania sesban a leguminous plant and their place in agriculture, augmentation of crop production, alternative of chemical fertilizers; soil reclamation, reduce pollutants, phytochemicals and medicinal properties. It has great restorative significance in agriculture. Whole plant is rich in phytochemical constituents such as anti-fungal, anti-diabetic, anti-fertility, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial activities and inflammatory disorders, polyherbal formulations and phytoremediation and soil conditioning.
