Abstract:

A total of 30 native rhizospheric microbes and 7 endophytes had been isolated and purified from rhizospheric soil samples and from roots of healthy banana plants, collected from different banana growing areas of Assam. The screening of 37 rhizospheric microbes and endophytes against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense was performed with the help of dual culture technique. The efficacy of the rhizospheric microbes and endophytes were recorded at different intervals from 24 to 120 hours. It was observed that out of 37 isolates, the per cent reduction in growth of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense after 120 hours of inoculation was found more than 70% in case of 10 rhizospheric microbes. Of which 3 rhizospheric microbes performed better with a per cent reduction in growth above 80%. However, not a single endophytes could be found promising in inhibition the growth of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense. The per cent reduction of growth was recorded minimum 47.3% in endophytes against 86.44% in rhizospheric microbes.
