Abstract:

Iron is one of the most essential micronutrient for any living cells but the availability of iron is limited due to very low solubility of the dominant ferric iron (Fe3+) in soil. Bacteria can produce low molecular weight iron chelating compound called as siderophore. On account of that, an attempt was made in the present investigation to study the effect of siderophore producing rhizobacteria on growth of Okra and evaluation of biocontrol efficacy of the potential isolates against different phyto-pathogens in-vitro. It was observed that the siderophore producing isolates significantly increase the growth parameters like root length, shoot length and biomass of Okra which was also statistically significant and showed antagonistic effect against different phytopathogens including Rahizoctonia solani (ITCC-186) and Fusarium oxysporum (ITCC-578).


Keywords: Iron, Rhizobacteria, Siderophore, Phyto-pathogens.
