Evaluation of effective bacterial isolates for their plant growth promoting (PGP) activities in chickpea
Keywords:Chickpea, Plant growth promoting activity, Pulse, Root length, Sclerotia rolfsii
Chickpea is mainly used for human consumption; a small proportion forms part of animal and poultry feed. Chickpea growing area contributes about 30 % of total pulse acreage and about 40 % of the total pulse production of the country. Inoculation with bacterial isolates revealed that germination percentage in all the treatments, including control, exhibited 100 per cent in vitro. After 96 hours of incubation, maximum root length (cm) was recorded in isolate BI 43 (3.43) followed by BI 31 (3.33), BI 78 (3.27), BI 68 (3.23), BI 36 (2.75), which were statistically at par with themselves.
