Abstract:

Total 41 Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacterial (PGPR) isolates were obtained from salinity affected rhizospheric soil samples of mungbean and were characterized for different plant growth promoting characters in in vitro conditions. Two most potent isolates were tested alone and in combination with Rhizobium under salinity affected field of mungbean crop. Application of alone PGPR significantly improved different parameters of root and shoot i.e. length, fresh and dry weight under field conditions. However, combined application of two or three isolates gave highest root and shoot length, fresh and dry weight among all the treatments tested, suggesting synergistic effect of PGPR in salinity mitigation under saline stress conditions in mungbean crop. Combined application of all three bioinoculants produced higher root length (61.57%), shoot length (31.70%), root fresh weight (122.03%), shoot fresh weight (71.76%), root dry weight (153.33%) and shoot dry weight (100%) over control in pooled of two locations.
