Soil potassium supplementation relies heavily on the use of chemical fertilizer, which has a considerable negative impact on the environment. There is a growing need to turn back to nature or sustainable agents that promote evergreen agriculture. Among such natural bio-agents, the potassium solubilizing bacteria (KSB), which solubilize fixed forms of potassium (K) and increase growth, yield and nutrient uptake of wheat plant and hence Soil fertility can be restored effectively through adopting concept of integrated soil fertility management (ISFM). A pot experiment conducted to study the effect of KSB isolates in wheat plant. Soil and leaf samples were drawn from the respective plots and they were subjected for the analysis of various parameters related to nutrients and quality aspects. Plants treated with different KSB isolate without potassium fertilizer. Among various treatments five isolates were in order of KSB 107 > KSB 37> KSB 54>KSB 48>KSB 1008-4 found positive effect on growth and yield of wheat crop as well as gave better nutrient uptake.
