Abstract:

Microbial biodiversity in the soil plays a significant role in metabolism of complex molecules and help in plant nutrition. Phosphate solubilizing Bacteria (PSB) increases availability of phosphorus, therefore reducing the application of chemical fertilizers. The present study was aimed to isolate and characterize the selected phosphorus solubilizing bacteria from Rhizospheric regions of Walnut (Juglans regia). Walnut rhizospheric region samples were collected from the different sites of Kashmir, India. Each sample was enriched in Pikovskayas’s solid medium (pH 7.5 at 30°C for 5 days). Out of 25 isolates, 7 isolates showed highest zone of clearance on Pikovskayas’s medium and were morphologically and biochemically characterized. These 7 isolates belong to genus Bacillus (PSB8, PSB9, PSB13, 14), Pseudomonas (PSB10, PSB11) and Micrococcus (PSB12).
