Abstract:

Iron has low solubility in nature so that the role of siderophore as chelating iron and inhibiting a pathogenic enzyme is needed for plant growth. In this study, we selected and characterized fungi producing siderophore with the aim can be used as biofertilizer and biocontrol. There were 10 fungal isolates in total from rhizosphere which were obtained produced various siderophores. Catechol siderophore emitted was between 5,07µg l-1 and 14.87 µg l-1 while the salicylate siderophore ranged from 3.89 µg l-1 to 7,21 µg l-1. ETR17 which produced the highest rate of catechol siderophore which was 14.87 µg l-1 and salicylate siderophore 7.21 µg l-1. The isolate was identified and characterized as Aspergillussp
