Abstract:

Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) are free living soil microorganisms that exert beneficial effects on plants. In the present study 8 strains of fluorescent pseudomonas and 4 strains of Bacillus were isolated from Banana rhizosphere of Nanded, Maharashtra. These strains were characterized morphologically and biochemically and studied for their plant growth promoting activities such as IAA production, GA production, Phosphate solubilization. Biocontrol traits of the isolates were also studied such as siderophore production and HCN production. These strains were tested for antifungal activity against plant pathogens Alternaria solani and Fusarium oxysporum.Yps 8 exhibited the most effective antifungal activity against Alternaria and Yps1 exhibited the most effective antifungal activity against Fusarium oxysporum.
