Abstract:

Nitrogen fixation, siderophore production, phosphate solubilization and antimicrobial activity are some of the plant growth promoting effect of Rhizobium spp. associated with various leguminous plants but the subject needs to be discussed in more depth. Plant growth promoting effect and biocontrol potential of nitrogen fixing root nodule isolates from certain leguminous plants of Manipur was investigated. In present study, nodule isolates associated with ten leguminous plants from different districts of Manipur were selected. Indole acetic acid (IAA) production, phosphate solubilization and antagonistic activities of Rhizobium strains against M. phaseolina were evaluated using dual culture technique. Certain Rhizobium isolates performed moderately in vitro, for the production of phosphate solubilization and IAA production. In vitro study revealed that certain Rhizobium strains effectively reduced the growth of M. phaseolina by 50-88% inhibition zone as compared to control.


Keywords: Biocontrol, Rhizobium, IAA production, Phosphate solubilization, Macrophomina phaseolina.
