Abstract:

The experiment was carried out in both laboratory as well as poly-house condition at Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University Varanasi, India. Under this study, four different endophytic bacterial strains namely Burkholderia cepacia (RRE3), Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. Phaseoli (RRE6), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (BHU3), Pseudomonas saponiphila (BHU8) were characterized for different physiological characters production of IAA, siderophore, and solubilization of phosphorus, zinc, potash. The plant-microbe interaction effect of these bacteria, either singly or in combination, on growth and development of maize (Malviya Hybrid Maize 2) were also studied. The results reveal that the combination of BHU8 with RRE3 proved to be most beneficial and efficient with regards to many of the growth parameters like shoot and root length, number of leaves, shoot and root fresh weight, shoot, root dry weight and chlorophyll content.
