Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) have gained worldwide importance and have been identified in influencing the growth and yield of many plants. On account of that, an attempt was made in the present investigation to study plant growth promoting activities of bacteria isolated from rhizospheric region of different crop fields from khorda district, Odisha, India. A total of nine bacteria was isolated and they were further characterized for their different plant growth promoting activities like production of Indole acetic acid (IAA), HCN, Siderophore & Phosphate solubilization. It was observed that all the bacterial isolates were positive for ammonia production but negative for HCN production. Bacterial isolates were again tried with tomato to study the growth performance. Among all the isolates DRN-3 and DRN-9 significantly increase the root length, shoot length and biomass of the plant in respect to control which was also statistically significant.
