Abstract:

In our present study, we have isolated zinc solubilizing bacteria from rhizospheric soils of rice growing area surrounding Raichur and Koppal districts of Karnataka, India. Around 40 zinc solubilizing bacteria were isolated using TRIS-minimal agar medium (TMA) supplemented with 0.1 % ZnO. All the isolates were named after zinc solubilization such as MZSB-1 to MZSB-40 respectively. Under in vitro conditions, all the bacteria were able to grow in the TMA plates and solubilize Zinc. Among all the isolates, MZSB8 and MZSB6 showed a maximum zone of solubilization of 21 mm and 19 mm respectively. Based on the morphological and biochemical characterization the isolates were identified as Pseudomonas and Bacillus sp.


Keywords: ZnO, TRIS minimal agar, Zone of solubilization
