Abstract:

The rhizospheric flora plays a vital role in the growth and establishment of the forest trees especially at early stages. Taxus wallichiana, being a slow growing conifer of Kashmir Himalaya, has been studied for isolation and characterization of the growth promoting bacteria from its rhizosphere. Two species of Bacillus namely B. subtilis and B. safensis were isolated and characterized by 16S rRNA gene technique. These bacteria have showed effective growth promoting properties like phosphate solubilization and IAA production. During this study both species were found quite effective and reliable sources for use as bio-fertilizer for improving the growth of this endangered forest tree under natural conditions.
