Abstract:

Laboratory experiments were conducted to isolate screen and select the efficient P-solubilizing fungal isolates from soybean rhizosphere in the districts of Northern Karnataka. 24 P-solubilizing fungal isolates were obtained from the soil samples and were screened for phosphorus solubilizing ability on Pikovskaya’s agar and broth BS-9(1) showed highest phosphorus solubilizing activity. Seven efficient isolates which were biocompatible with native soybean root nodulating bacteria (Bradyrhizobium Japonicum) were selected and assessed for other functional activities such as zinc and potassium solubilization, phytohormone production (IAA and GA3) and cellulolytic activity. All seven isolates were able to solubilize zinc and produce phytohormones. Among the seven isolates BS-6(1) was highest in phytohormone production and BS-6(1) and S-8(1) produced cellulase enzyme.
