Abstract:

The aims of the present work was to isolate and study fungal endophytes associated with eleven selected forest plants, collected from the district of Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. A total of 16 endophytic fungi were isolated from different tissue parts of these plants which were screened for their Plant growth promoting traits namely, IAA, ammonia, Urease production and phosphate solubilisation. Based upon their PGP traits four most potent endophytes were selected for further in vitro plant growth analysis including seed germination assay and effect of culture supernatant on the growth of Vigna sp. The findings of this study indicated that the isolated fungal endophyte identified as Fusarium sp. from Tectona grandis stem can play a crucial function to improve plant growth and could be utilized as biofertilizer or bioagent to establish a sustainable crop production system.
