Abstract:

Tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum L.), is a most common vegetable crop worldwide and is well studied in genetics, genomics, breeding and being an excellent model for the basic and applied research related to fruit quality, stress tolerance and other physiologic traits. In the present study, a microbial aspect of tomato, in terms of the endophytic bacterial population present in the plant had been studied. For the isolation of endophytic bacteria, six hybrid varieties (Kashi Sharad, Kashi Anupam, Kashi Amrit, DVRT-2, Prestige and S-22), and two local varieties (S-3619 and Kajla) of tomato were grown in pots under natural conditions. The population dynamics of culturable endophytic bacteria in seedlings root (after 21 days) were enumerated. The endophytic population varies in all the varieties of tomato in between range from 2.8X103 to 3.5 X105 (cfu) bacteria per gram of fresh root. The maximum population was observed in local variety, S-3619 (3.4±0.64X 105), whereas minimum in the variety of Kajla (3.2±0.09X105). In case of hybrid variety S-22 supported maximum population 3.5±0.88X105 followed by Kashi Anupam (3.3±0.08X 103), Prestige (3.1±0.0.8X 104), DVRT-2 (2.9±0.02X 103), Kashi Amrit (2.1±0.06X 104) and Kashi Sharad (2.4±0.08X 103).
