INTERVENTION OF MULTITASKING PGPR IN PULSE PRODUCTION UNDER STRESS CONDITIONS
Keywords:PGPR, ACC-deaminase, IAA, Nitrogen fixation, Exopolysaccharide
Pulse production in India is subjected to different environmental stresses. Moreover, in order to feed the world, increasing production without causing harm to the environment has become the central concept of the sustainable agriculture. The intensive use of chemicals pollutes the environment and calls the attention of the researchers to figure out alternatives for pulse cultivation in sustainable manner. Utilization of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) in pulse production has been reported to be beneficial not only in maintaining the optimum yield but also in cutting down the cost of cultivation. Some of the PGP traits considered especially for pulse production under stress conditions are nitrogen fixation, phosphorus solubilisation, sulphur oxidation, production of enzymes such as ACC-deaminase and IAA-like substances, exopolysaccharides production and bioprotection.
