The present research was conducted to investigate the effect of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) and deficit irrigation on quality and quantity of flax under field conditions. The effects of PGPRs were evaluated at different irrigation levels. Bacterial strains solubilized phosphate, produced ammonia, indole acetic acid, and siderophore. According to the results bacterial inoculations significantly mitigated the effects of water deficit on oil, linolenic and linoleic acid, protein, sulphur and vitamin contents, shoot and capsules number and harvest index.
