Abstract:

A broad range of microorganisms are present in soil of mango orchard which involved in various mango plant diseases. In order to preliminary study for plant pathogenesis the soil samples were collected from GKVK, University of Agricultural Science, Bangalore, Karnataka, India. A number of bacterial and fungal isolates were obtained from soil sample. The bacterial isolates were characterized by Gram staining, Catalase test, MR test, VP test, IND test and Citrate test and fungal isolates were characterized by staining. These analyses revealed the presence of various bacterial pathogen including Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter aerogenes, Shigella species, Bacillus anthracis, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus species, Streptococcus species, Corynebacterium, Micrococcus, Azomonas species and Rhizobium species. Identification of Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium oxysporum, Penicillium and Rhizopus species characterized as a fungal pathogen. The present study provided baseline information regarding the phytopathogenic bacteria and fungus which associated with soil of mango orchard.
