The rhizosphere of plant species is an inimitable ecosystem that harbors an extensive range of microbes. Research in the wide areas of rhizosphere biotechnology highlighting new bioinoculants has received ample attention during recent past, and suitable expertises have been developed. However, the global recognition of such technologies by farmers is still(More)
The co-cultivation of tissue explants with beneficial microbes induces numerous developmental and metabolic alterations in the resulting plantlets conferring enhanced tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses. In the present study we have co-cultivated plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) exhibiting multiple plant growth promoting activities with the(More)
Abiotic stresses (such as salinity, drought, cold, heat, mineral deficiency and metals/metalloids) have become major threats to the global agricultural production. These stresses in isolation and/or combination control plant growth, development and productivity by causing physiological disorders, ion toxicity, and hormonal and nutritional imbalances. Some(More)
The aim of current research was to evaluate the physiological adjustment in three medicinal herbs viz., Atropa acuminata, Lupinus polyphyllus and Hyoscyamus niger to the winter period characterised by intense UV flux in Kashmir valley across the North Western Himalaya. Quinolizidine (QA) and tropane alkaloid (TA) concentrations were analysed in these herbs(More)
Herbs adapted to diverse climates exhibit distinct variability to fluctuating temperatures and demonstrate various metabolic and physiological adaptations to harsh environments. In this research, Rumex dentatus L. and Lavandula officinalis L. were collected before snowfall in September-November to evaluate variability in major phytoconstituents to diverse(More)
