Harvest losses by drought, salt and heat stress amount to about 60 % of total productivity, making abiotic stress tolerance a key aim in crop improvement. Although all plants can respond to changing environmental conditions, the ability of a variety of plants to adapt to extreme stress conditions often depends on the association with specific rhizosphere microbes. It is therefore timely to unravel the molecular mechanisms how rhizosphere microbes enable plants to adapt to stress and use this knowledge for securing food production in a sustainable way.

Date palm, Phoenix dactylifera L is the oldest fruit tree in the Arabian Peninsula where it is closely associated with the life and culture of the people since pre-historic times. As per the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN there are over 120 million date palms worldwide of which more than 70 per cent are estimated to be in the Arab world. There are more than 2000 varieties of dates of which over 400 have been reported from Saudi Arabia.
