Characterization of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria associated with chickpea ( Cicer arietinum L . )

  title={Characterization of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria associated with chickpea ( Cicer arietinum L . )},
  author={Babu Joseph and R. Ranjan Patra and Reena Lawrence},
Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are known to influence plant growth by various direct or indirect mechanisms. In search of efficient PGPR strains with multiple activities, a total of 150 bacterial isolates belonging to Bacillus, Pseudomonas, Azotobacter and Rhizobium were isolated from different rhizospheric soil of chick pea in the vicinity of Allahabad. These test isolates were biochemically characterized and screened in vitro for their plant growth promoting traits like… CONTINUE READING
