Selection of Effective Indigenous Rhizobium Strain for Seed Inoculation of Chickpea (Cicer aritenium L.) Production

J. Yadav, J.P. Verma, V.K. Rajak and K.N. Tiwari

Abstract:
Effective indigenous Rhizobium strains were selected and evaluated their ability for enhanced nodulation; grain yield and nutrient uptake of chickpea (Cicer aritenium L.) at eastern Uttar Pradesh region. Fifty Rhizobium strains were isolated from healthy chickpea root nodules. Eight Rhizobium strains were selected from out of fifty Rhizobium strains, on the basis of visual observations of effective nodules number and fast growth pattern on YEMA medium for field experiment. One reference strains USDA-3378 were selected for field experiment. In field experiment, the indigenous Rhizobium strain BHURC04 was found to be highly effective with significant increase in nodules number (73.53%) plant-1, dry weight of nodules (78.07%) plant-1 and grain (31.76%) and straw (24.37%) yields followed by BHURC05, USDA-3378 and BHURC03 over uninoculated control. Similarly uptake of N and P by grain (46.93 and 93.26%) and straw (47.01 and 79.56%), respectively maximum in seed inoculation of Rhizobium strain BHURC04 over uninoculated control. Indigenous Rhizobium strain BHURC04 was found to be highly effective symbiotic nitrogen fixer for uptake of nutrient content and grain yield of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.).
