The present research investigation was aimed to isolate nodule associated endophytic bacterium and to screen the PHB production efficiency among different carbon source. The Aeschynomene indica root qualitative phytochemical anlaysis reveals presence of all tested phytochemicals except cardiac glycoside.two bacterial genera namely Rhizobium sp nand Blastbacter sp were isolated and identified based on biochemical characters. Bot the isolated strains were solublize phosphate, produced Indole acetic acid and failed to produce siderophore. Both the isolated bacterial strains were PHB positive in nature. Among the tested bacterial strains maximum of 80% PHB was recovered from Blastobacter sp under five percentage Jaggery as carbon source. The phylogenetic tree reveals that the isolates was found to be Blastobacter  capsulatus.

Keywords: Legumes, Rhizosphere,PHA, Budding bacteria,Glycerol.
