Four antagonists bacteria namely, Bacillus megaterium MB3, B. subtilis MB14, B. subtilis MB99 and B. amyloliquefaciens MB101 were able to produce chitinase, β-1,3-glucanase and protease in different range with the presence of Rhizoctonia solani cell wall as a carbon source. Amplification of chitinase (chiA) gene of 270 bp and β-1, 3-glucanase gene of 415 bp(More)
Tomato root rot caused by Rhizoctonia solani is a major soilborne disease resulting in significant yield loss. The culture filtrates of six isolates of Trichoderma/Hypocrea species were evaluated for in vitro production of hydrolytic enzymes. Results demonstrated that all the six isolates were able to produce chitinase, β-1, 3 glucanase and protease in the(More)
Drought tolerant endophytic actinobacteria Streptomyces coelicolor DE07, S. olivaceus DE10 and Streptomyces geysiriensis DE27 were isolated from cultivated plants of arid and drought affected regions of Rajasthan, India. These isolates exhibited plant growth promotion traits and intrinsic water stress tolerance from −0.05 to −0.73 MPa. Maximum auxin(More)
Wilt and root rot are the major constraints in chickpea production and very difficult to manage through agrochemicals. Hence, for an ecofriendly and biological management, 240 strains of Bacillus and Bacillus derived genera were isolated from chickpea rhizosphere, further narrowed down to 14 strains on the basis of in vitro production of indole acetic acid,(More)
To investigate the biocontrol mechanism of two antagonistic Bacillus strains (Bacillus subtilis MB14 and Bacillus amyloliquefaciens MB101), three in vitro antagonism assays were screened and the results were concluded that both strains inhibited Rhizoctonia solani growth in a similar manner by dual culture assay, but the maximum percent of inhibition only(More)
Soil survey was conducted at four different locations of Guangxi, China to investigate the effect of peanut and soybean inter-cropping in sugarcane cultivation on the soil properties and diazotrophic bacterial diversity. Principal component analysis result shown (PCA) showed difference impact of intercropping and monoculture on the basis of biological and(More)
Chitinase producing strain B-CM18 was isolated from chickpea rhizosphere and identified as Lysinibacillus fusiformis B-CM18. It showed in vitro antifungal activity against a wide range of fungal plant pathogens and was found to produce several PGPR activities. Further, a multivariate response surface methodology was used to evaluate the effects of different(More)
A chitinolytic actinomycete Streptomyces vinaceusdrappus S5MW2 was isolated from water sample of Chilika lake, India and identified using 16S rRNA gene sequencing. It showed in vitro antifungal activity against the sclerotia producing pathogen Rhizoctonia solani in a dual culture assay and by chitinase enzyme production in a chitin supplemented minimal(More)
Water stress causes considerable yield losses in sugarcane. To investigate differentially expressed genes under water stress, a pot experiment was performed with the sugarcane variety GT21 at three water-deficit levels (mild, moderate, and severe) during the elongation stage and gene expression was analyzed using microarray technology. Physiological(More)
The growth conditions for chitinase production by Trichoderma asperellum UTP-16 in solid state fermentation was optimized using response surface methodology based on central composite design. The chitinase production was optimized, using one-factor at a time approach, with six independent variables (temperature, pH, NaCl, incubation period, nitrogen and(More)
