Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during the year 2017-18 in Laboratory of Microbiology, Division of Crop Production, ICAR-National Research Centre for Seed spices Ajmer, Rajasthan. The aim of study was to isolate potential Zn solubilizing plant growth promoting rhizobacteria from rhizosphere soil and plants of cumin. For this investigation 155 soil and plant samples were collected from Ajmer, Nagaur Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Barmer, Jalore districts of Rajasthan. From 155 samples, 153 isolates were collected and out of 153, 23 isolates were Zn solubilizers. However 23 Zn solubilizing rhizobacteria were selected for further studies viz., Qualitative and quantitative estimation of Zn in vitro and characterized them against biochemical identification and evaluate for plant growth promoting traits. In qualitative study of Zn estimation, highest solubilization zone was 26 mm due to isolate DCU-451 followed by 21, 20 and 19 mm associated with DCU-453, DCU-188 and DCU-184, respectively, and least solubilization zone was 12 mm due to isolate DCU-460. Similarly highest solubilization index was found 3.7 due to isolate 451 followed by 3.4, 3.3 and 3.2 were associated with rhizobacterial isolates DCU-453, 184 and 188 respectively, and lowest SI was 2.2 due to isolate DCU-169. In quantitative assay at 5 days highest amount of released Zn was found 152 µg followed by 144, 141 µg /ml due to isolate DCU-453, DCU-451 and DCU-188, respectively, and least was 81µg /ml in DCU-176. At 10 days highest amount of released Zn was found 268 µg followed by 253, 238 µg /ml due to isolate DCU-451, DCU-453 and DCU-172, respectively, and least was 117µg /ml in DCU-165. Similar results were found at 15 days also, that were highest amount of released Zn was found 419 µg followed by 391, 389 µg /ml associated with DCU-451, DCU-188 and DCU-453, respectively, and least was 184µg /ml in DCU-198. However rhizobacterial isolate DCU-451 was found superior in both qualitatively and quantitatively.
