Isolation of siderophore-producing strains of Rhizobium meliloti and their biocontrol potential against Macrophomina phaseolina that causes charcoal rot of groundnut
Of the 12 isolates of root-nodulating bacterium, Rhizobium meliloti isolated from the medicinal plant, Mucuna pruriens, only two were able to produce siderophores. The two isolates (RMP3 and RMP5)Expand
Bacillus strains isolated from rhizosphere showed plant growth promoting and antagonistic activity against phytopathogens.
Seven bacterial isolates screened from rhizosphere of common bean growing at Uttarakhand Himalaya showed potential plant growth promoting (PGP) and antagonistic activities. Based on 16S rRNA geneExpand
Reduction in dose of chemical fertilizers and growth enhancement of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) with application of rhizospheric competent Pseudomonas aeruginosa LES4
Abstract Pseudomonas aeruginosa LES4, an isolate of tomato rhizosphere was found to be positive for several plant growth-promoting attributes like production of indole acetic acid, HCN andExpand
Biological control of root rot fungus Macrophomina phaseolina and growth enhancement of Pinus roxburghii (Sarg.) by rhizosphere competent Bacillus subtilis BN1
Positive root colonization capability of B. subtilis BN1 proved it as a potent biocontrol agent andBioinoculant formulation study suggested that maximum viability of bacteria was in a sawdust-based carrier. Expand
Rhizosphere competent Mesorhizobiumloti MP6 induces root hair curling, inhibits Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and enhances growth of Indian mustard (Brassica campestris)
In dual culture technique the strain showed a strong antagonistic effect against Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, a white rot pathogen of Brassica campestris, and a drastic decline in the incidence of white rot was observed due to application of M. loti MP6. Expand
Solubilization of insoluble inorganic phosphates by a soil-inhabiting fungus Fomitopsis sp. PS 102
The field soil at Taegu, South Korea was screened for phosphate solubilizing fungal strains. Such strains were identified to be Fomitopsis sp. Phosphate solubilizing ability of Fomitopsis sp. PS 102Expand
Effect of Al and heavy metals on enzymes of nitrogen metabolism of fast and slow growing rhizobia under explanta conditions
Most of the legume crops are affected by metal stress present in the soil mainly due to contaminated agrochemicals and sewage sludge. The effect of aluminium, and heavy metals copper, iron andExpand
Use of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPRs) with multiple plant growth promoting traits in stress agriculture: Action mechanisms and future prospects.
Generally, ACC deaminase and IAA-producing bacteria can be a good option for optimal crop production and production of bio-fertilizers in the future due to having multiple potentials in alleviating stresses of salinity, drought, nutrient imbalance, and heavy metals toxicity in plants. Expand
Plant growth and health promoting bacteria
The benefits of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) and Rhizobia in Agriculture are studied and the potential of PGPR in Agricultural Innovations is examined. Expand
Plant growth enhancement and suppression of Macrophomina phaseolina causing charcoal rot of peanut by fluorescent Pseudomonas
Bacterization of peanut seeds with fluorescent Pseudomonas GRC2 resulted in increased seed germination, early seedling growth, fresh nodule weight, grain yield and reduced charcoal rot disease of peanut in M. phaseolina-infested soil as compared with control. Expand
