Abstract:

Aim of our research study to find out efficient strains of K-solubilizing bacteria from potassium solubilizing isolates under in-vitro condition and different source of potassium minerals. The morpho-biochemical characterization and mica-K solubilization capacity of K-solubilizers bacterial in-vitro was done. Effect of K-solubilizing bacterial isolates on pH, EC soluble K and residual silica at 7, 14, 21 and 28 days after incubation in broth containing mica was studied. A significant increase in K solubilization on mica containing broth was achieved by inoculation of different isolates of potassium solubilizing bacteria (KSB). Among the 10 isolate tested, maximum 3.11 µg mL-1 K was obtained with KSB 38 isolate at 21. Results of the present investigation show that KSB44, KSB38, KSB51, KSB11 and KSB30 emerged out as efficient K-solubilizers.
