Application of Rhizobium sp. BHURC01 and Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobactria on Nodulation, Plant Biomass and Yields of Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)

J.P. Verma, J. Yadav and Kavindra Nath Tiwari

Abstract:
Field-based experiments were conducted to evaluate the combined application of Rhizobium sp. BHURC01 and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria on chickpea production in two consecutive years. A positive influence of plant growth promoting rhizobactria and Rhizobium sp. BHURC01 on nodulation, plant biomass, nitrogen and phosphorus in nodule, grain and straw and yield related parameter were recorded in two year of field experiments. The maximum significant increase in nodule number, dry weight of nodule, root and shoot were recorded in co-inoculation of Rhizobium sp. BHURC01 and Pseudomonas fluorescens followed by co-inoculation of Rhizobium sp. BHURC01, Azotobacter chroococcum and Bacillus megaterium over uninoculated control in two year of field study while, nitrogen and phosphorus content increase in nodules, grain and straw. The Rhizobium sp. BHURC01 and P. fluorescens showed significant increase in all parameter due to more available nitrogen by Rhizobium sp. BHURC01 and more available of phosphorus, iron and plant hormones like indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and antifungal activity by P. fluorescens in comparison of B. megaterium and A. chroococcum. Therefore, co-inoculation of Rhizobium sp. BHURC01 and P. fluorescens could be effective biofertilizer for chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) production.

Shobnath Yadav:
this paper work and finding are very good and appropriate combination of PGPR for chickpea production in all over world. Authors have been reported very systematic and two year field axperimentaldata. this research have directly applied research in agriculture field.

this paper has been reported endigenous root nodules bacteria such Rhizobium which is good symbiotic relation with chickpea crops. this paper provide good information about PGPR with rhizobium relation and synergistic combination for all chickpea crops for high yield.
