Abstract:

The mungbean is one of the most important pulse crop cultivated in India, despite variation in salinity, temperature, and waterlogging conditions in different agro-climatic zones. Bacterial endophytes are endosymbiotic in nature and employ advantageous effects on host plant. In the present study, a total 41 endophytes were isolated from Mungbean nodule from the field during summer and kharif season. Among all isolates, 46% of the isolates were tolerating temperature up to 450C while and 19% could tolerate salinity up to 5% NaCl concentration. The majority of endophytes were found to be producers of indole acetic acid and ammonia which varied in the range of 1.12-44.88µg/ml and 0-3.47 µg/ml, respectively. P-solubilization activity was shown by 41 isolates on solid medium (49%), 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate utilization (24%), siderophores (29%), and HCN production (76%). The isolates were having multiple growth traits along with resistance to varying temperatures and salinity conditions thus qualifying as potential candidates for desired yield in fields.
