CONSORTIUM OF A. FEACALIS AND P. FLLIORESCENS PROMOTED THE GROWTH OF ARACHIS HYPOGEA (GROUNDNUT)ROUNDNUT) R.Z. SAYYEDP, B.S. NAPHADC, S.A. JOSH, N.S. GANGURDE, H.M. BHAMARE AND S.B. CHINCHOLKAR
Plant growth promoting ability of A. feacalis and P. fluorescens NCIM 5096 was examined in A. hypogea at various levels viz, plate, pot and field levels. Co-inoculation of A feacalis with P. fluorescens NCIM 5096 showed enhanced plant growth in A. hypogea than single inoculation with either of these two rhizobacteria. After 90 days of sowing, it resulted in 21.39% increase in shoot length, 16.30% increase in root length, 43.05% increase in chlorophyll content, 22.51% increase in number of pods and 31.25% increase in number of branches.
