Isolation of siderophore-producing strains of Rhizobium meliloti and their biocontrol potential against Macrophomina phaseolina that causes charcoal rot of groundnut
Plant growth promotory nature of both the rhizobial strains was confirmed and there was a marked enhancement in percentage seed germination, seedling biomass, nodule number and nodule fresh weight of M. phaseolina-infected groundnut plants inoculated with the strains RMP3 and RMP5.
Bacillus strains isolated from rhizosphere showed plant growth promoting and antagonistic activity against phytopathogens.
Reduction in dose of chemical fertilizers and growth enhancement of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) with application of rhizospheric competent Pseudomonas aeruginosa LES4
Use of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPRs) with multiple plant growth promoting traits in stress agriculture: Action mechanisms and future prospects.
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.
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.
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 and Fomitopsis sp.
Plant growth and health promoting bacteria
- D. Maheshwari
The benefits of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) and Rhizobia in Agriculture are studied and the potential of PGPR in Agricultural Innovations is examined.
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.
