Phosphate Solubilizing Microorganisms by Mohammad Saghir Khan download in ePub, pdf, iPad

Recent data suggest

Autocleaved uninoculated medium served as control. Although P is abundant in soils in both inorganic and organic forms, it is a major limiting factor for plant growth as it is in an unavailable form for root uptake.

Yandigeri Find articles by Mahesh S. Production and Hosting by Elsevier B. Four strains per plate were stabbed in triplicate using sterile toothpicks. Microbial mediated P management is an ecofriedly and cost effective approach for sustainable development of agricultural crop.

Inorganic P occurs in soil, mostly in insoluble mineral complexes, some of them appearing after frequent application of chemical fertilizers. Recent data suggest that bacteria growin under phosphorus starvation release iron-chelating molecules. Intensive cropping pattern during this green and white revolution has also resulted in widespread deficiency of phosphorus.

Inorganic P occurs in soil mostly

Thus, increased P levels have been identified as a main factor for eutrophication of surface waters that may lead to algal blooms Schindler et al. This has led to increased interest in the harnessing of microorganisms to support P cycling in agroecosystems. This volume offers a broad overview of plant disease management using phosphate solubilizing microbes and presents strategies for the management of cultivated crops.

The production of biofertilizer and its acceptance by farming communities are closely linked. The zone of n clearance can be clearly seen. Phosphate solubilizing microorganisms were isolated from rhizosphere soils of different crops.
