Abstract:

Laboratory experiments were conducted to isolate screen and select the efficient P-solubilizing fungal isolates from maize rhizosphere in the districts of Northern Karnataka. 21 P-solubilizing fungal isolates were obtained from the soil samples and were screened for phosphorus solubilizing ability on Pikovskaya’s agar and broth M-10(1) showed highest phosphorus solubilizing activity. Five efficient isolates were selected and assessed for other functional activities such as zinc and potassium solubilization, phytohormone production (IAA and GA3¬) and cellulolytic activity. All five isolates were able to solubilize zinc and produce phytohormones. Among the five isolates M-10(1) was highest in phytohormone production and DM-3(2) was the only isolate to produce cellulase enzyme.
