Abstract:

This study was conducted to isolate sulphur oxidising bacteria from saline soils of groundnut growing places in Andhra Pradesh, India and they were characterized based upon their morphological and biochemical characteristics. Among 10 isolates five were capable of reducing the pH of the growth media below 5.0 from initial pH 8.0 and made the highest sulphate production in the growth media and sulphate production of isolates ranges from 1.264 mM to 0.390 mM.


Keywords: Sulphur oxidizing bacteria, Sulphate production
