Abstract:
The use of phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) as biofertilizers has concurrently increased phosphorous uptake in plants and improved yields in several crop species. A laboratory study was conducted to isolate, identify and characterize the phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) from various rhizospheric soils from District Kulgam. Based on the highest solubilization zone production in the solid Pikovskaya’s medium, 7 isolates (PSBK-10, PSBK-11, PSBK-12, PSBK-13, PSBK-14, PSBK-15 and PSBK-16) were selected and used for further studies. The selected PSB strains were screened in vitro. Among these PSB isolates, 4 strains belong to genera Bacillus sp, 2 to Pseudomonas and 1 to Micrococcus.
