Abstract:

PGPB are free-living soil, rhizosphere, rhizoplane, and phylosphere bacteria that, under some conditions, are beneficial for plants Most of the activities of PGPB have been studied in the rhizosphere. PGPB promote plant growth by directly affect the metabolism of the plants by providing substances that are usually in short supply. The present investigation was conducted at Department of Biological Sciences, Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences (Deemed-to-be University) Allahabad, during Rabi season 2015-16. Tomato plants variety NTL-186 was transplanted in pot during 2nd week of Fabuary. The experiment was carried out using 11 treatments with three replication on completely randomized design. There are five different PGPR are selected namely (PR3, PR5, PR6, PR24 and PR29) along with FYM 10 t/ha and Fertilizer dose (NPK) 120:60:50 NPK- kg/ha. Results revealed that PGPR strain PR6 along with T7 [NPK (100%) and FYM(100%)] showed the highest seed germination (100%), root length of seedling (6.00 cm), shoot length of seedling (6.43cm), plant height 60 DAT (70.10 cm),number of branches per plant 60 DAT (14.67), number of leaves/plants 60 DAT (50.33), total number of flowers/ plant (20.33), fresh weight of plant (42.28g/plant) and dry weight of plant (14.16 g/plant) obtained all the data were statistically significant. From the present investigation it concluded that T7 (PR6 + NPK (100%) + FYM (100) %) significantly increased the growth and yield of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.).
