Members of the Klebsiella genus promote plant growth. We report here draft whole-genome sequences for 15 Klebsiella sp. isolates from sugarcane fields in the Cauca Valley of Colombia. The genomes of these isolates were characterized as part of a broader effort to evaluate their utility as endemic plant growth-promoting biofertilizers.
