Identification of rice blast disease-suppressing bacterial strains from the rhizosphere of rice grown in Pakistan.
There are complex interactions between rhizobacteria and rice plants with respect to biocontrol of rice blast disease, dependent upon both rice cv and soil type, but each cultivar responded to different subsets of the bacteria. Expand
SALT-TOLERANT PGPR STRAIN PLANOCOCCUS RIFIETOENSIS PROMOTES THE GROWTH AND YIELD OF WHEAT (TRITICUM AESTIVUM L.) CULTIVATED IN SALINE SOIL
It is concluded that bacterial isolate SAL-15 can be used as potent bacterial inoculum for yield improvement of wheat under salinity stress by alleviating the toxic effects of salinity. Expand
Plant growth-promoting bacteria as biofertilizer
It was concluded that Bacillus pumilus 8N-4 can be used as a bio-inoculant for biofertilizer production to increase the crop yield of wheat variety Orkhon in Mongolia. Expand
Plant root associated bacteria for zinc mobilization in rice
It was concluded that, selected PGPR strains can serve as efficient solubilizer of Zn, allowing farmers to avoid the use of costly chemical Zn fertilizer in rice crop. Expand
Effect of salinity and inoculation on growth, nitrogen fixation and nutrient uptake ofVigna radiata (L.) Wilczek
The effect of salinity and inoculation on growth, ion uptake and nitrogen fixation by Vigna radiata was drastically affected at high salt concentration and most of the studied strains of Rhizobium were salt tolerant. Expand
Symbiotic effectiveness and bacteriocin production by Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae isolated from agriculture soils in Faisalabad
Antagonism amongst mixtures of inoculant strains of Rhizobiaceae on the basis of bacteriocin production was assessed and it was observed that Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. Expand
Characterization of siderophore producing bacterial strain Pseudomonas fluorescens Mst 8.2 as plant growth promoting and biocontrol agent in wheat
It is demonstrated that bacterial strain Mst 8.2 with its multi-mechanisms of defense has excellent potential to be used as successful biocontrol agent against R. solani root rot disease in wheat. Expand

It is concluded that strain Ca-34(T) represents a novel species, for which the name Ochrobactrum ciceri sp. Expand
Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria: an alternate way to improve yield and quality of wheat (Triticum aestivum).
The present findings show that enhanced rate of PGPR colonization can improve grain yield and Zn content of wheat as compared to chemical Zn fertilizer. Expand
