Background: The collective impact of climate change and soil salinity is continuously increasing the degraded lands across the globe, bringing agricultural productivity and food security under stress. The high concentration of salts in saline soils impose osmotic, ionic, oxidative and water stress in plants. Biological solutions can be the most re...

In the present study, rhizobial isolate LB2 was procured from the root nodules of Leucaena leucocephala wildly growing in saline soil. On the basis of morphology, biochemical analysis and nucleotide sequence homology LB2 was identified as Agrobacterium tumefaciens syn. Rhizobium radiobacter (Accession no. KY392996). Rhizobium radiobacter LB2 showed...

The rhizosphere is the region around plant roots where maximum microbial activities occur. In the rhizosphere both beneficial and harmful activities of microorganisms affect plant growth and development. The mutualistic rhizospheric bacteria which improve the plant growth and health are known as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR). They are...

Salinity is a major abiotic stress which limits the crop productivity. In this study salt tolerant bacteria were isolated from root nodules of Crotalaria juncea plant collected from different salt affected sites. Salt tolerance activity of all the isolates was checked and it was observed that 47% of the isolates showed up to 8% salt tolerance. On t...

Since last century or so anthropogenic activities have intensely metamorphosed the earth’s ecosystem and resulted into major environmental changes. Widespread interference of human related activities have resulted in major problems including environmental pollution, land degradation, global warming/climate change, paucity of potable water supply an...

In this study plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) were isolated from root nodules of Vigna radiata and rhizospheric soil of Abrus precatorius respectively. On the basis of morphological, biochemical and physiological characterization, isolate R5 (from root nodules of V. radiata) was identified as Rhizobium and P21 (from rhizosphere of A. pr...

In this study, siderophore production by various bacteria amongst the plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria was quantified by a rapid and efficient method. In total, 23 siderophore-producing bacterial isolates/strains were taken to estimate their siderophore-producing ability by the standard method (chrome azurol sulphonate assay) as well as 96 well...

The nitrogen fixing bacterial group known as rhizobia are very important and are used as biological fertilizers for two main purposes; one is to fulfil the nutritional requirements of increasingly populated world and other to overcome the problems arising due to chemical fertilizers. Rhizobial bioformulations are in the market since more than a cen...

Rhizobia are known as very efficient exopolysaccharide (EPS) producers and EPS plays an important role in various biotechnological applications. In this study twenty (R1-R20) EPS producing rhizobia were isolated from root nodules of medicinal plants named Trigonella growing in different areas of Lucknow (U.P.). All the isolates were checked for EPS...

In the last few years, biopesticides have emerged as suitable alternatives to synthetic chemical pesticides. They are cheaper and pose no threat to agroecosystems. This is why their demand and production are also increasing at global level. The law and policies regulating their use and development vary from country to country, and in-depth analysis...
