In this study, we have shown that the plant growth promoting bacterial strain NBRI K24 and strain NBRI K3 from fly ash (FA) contaminated soil reduce the toxicity of Ni and Cr in Brassica juncea (Indian mustard) and promote plant growth under pot culture experiments. Isolated strains NBRI K24 and NBRI K3 were characterized based on the 16S rDNA sequencing and identified as Enterobacter aerogenes and Rahnella aquatilis respectively. Both the strains were siderophore producing and found capable of… CONTINUE READING
