Abstract:

The phyllosphere supports a large and complex bacterial community that varies both across plant species and geographical locations. Phyllosphere bacteria can have important effects on plant health. Many fungal diseases leads to important crop loss and due to limited antifungal availability and effectiveness in agriculture practices, it appears necessary to develop alternative control strategies. A total of 46 bacteria isolates were obtained from phyllosphere of different crops (Wheat, Pearl millet, Cotton, Mungbean and Potato). All the bacterial isolates were characterized for antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger and Rhizoctonia solani. Only Eighteen bacterial isolates showed the growth inhibition of phyto-pathogenic fungi against A. niger. and R. solani. On the basis of plant growth promotion traits, a total of seven isolates (POK-3, WHN-2, WHN-1, PMK-3, WHK-2, COJ-4, and MUK-1) were applied as foliar spray. The plants inoculated with the phyllospheric bacterial isolates recorded as biocontrol against phyto pathogenic fungi A. niger and R. solani. Therefore, it can be concluded that application of PGPB has immense potential to be used as biocontrol as they promote plant growth as well as improve the health and yield of the plants.
