Abstract:

Keeping in view the scare knowledge of the composition of bacterial diversity associated with roots of wheat, the present study was undertaken to explore its diversity & investigate their role in plant growth promotion. Present study revels, the diversity of bacterial isolates from soils under wheat cultivation in districts of Solan of Himachal Pradesh. Phenotypic and physiological characteristics of the PGPR isolates were record to categorize and identify the bacteria. Sixty different rhizobacteria isolates were recovered from different locations of the district of which some were rainfed and some were irrigated. The characteristics of the bacterial isolates were determined using the colony morphology, gram staining as well as biochemical properties. These isolates were than tested for different PGPR traits, such as production of lytic enzymes, siderophore, P-solubilization, Ammonia and HCN.
