The rhizosphere is the soil zone adjacent to plant roots. A number of processes takes place at rhizosphreic region like interaction between bio molecules and clay minerals, interaction between abiotic components and sorption and desorption processes. Plants exude a variety of organic compounds and inorganic ions which are involved in interaction processes. Micro-orgnisms present in the rhizosphere also are involved in the rhizosphreic proceses. All these processes lead to physical, chemical and biological change that indirectly affect solubilization, mobilisation of nutrient elements and their uptake by plants. As, nutrient  availability to plants is influenced by the rhizospheric processes and their root-development system, improving plant root growth and proper management of rhizosphere region can improve nutrient availability. At this point of time, though the studies on influence of  rhizosphereic biogeochemical processes on plant nutrition is limited, we try to review the studies on the concept.

Key words: Rhizosphere, Biotic and abiotic components, Interaction, Plant exudates, Nutrient availability.
