Extracellular enzymes and acids produced by different microorganisms in rhizosphere play important roles in degradation of complex agricultural wastes generated by various farming practices and agroindustries. In present study, total 40 actinomycete isolates previously retrieved from chickpea nodules and rhizosphere soil samples collected from fields of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, were evaluated for their abilities to produce enzymes as well as acid. Out of 40 actinomycete isolates, 60%, 67.5% and 25% actinomycete isolates were able to produce protease, cellulase and acid, respectively, whereas only one isolate AK34 was able to show amylase activity. These actinomycete isolates having protease, cellulase, amylase and acid producing abilities seem to play a very significant role in degradation of agricultural wastes and can be explored for their bioremediation potential.
