Root associated bacteria were isolated from the rice field by using nitrogen free selective medium. The biochemical tests and molecular analysis were performed for the identification of isolates. Then the sequences obtained were analyzed by using bioinformatics software and the cultures were identified as Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes, Bacillus pumilus and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia. Then these isolates were in vitro inoculated to paddy plant to study their effect on plant growth promotion and resistance against pathogen. Results obtained during greenhouse showed antagonistic effect of these isolates against Magnaporthe grisea and enhance growth parameters.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
