Interaction effect of Bacillus spp. and Glomus intraradices on growth parameters of Ragi


Chaitra Lakkannavar, Mahadeva Swamy, Nagraj Naik and Ramesh YM

Soil microorganisms play a very important role in improving soil fertility and enhancing the plant growth. Bacillus and AM Fungi are the important key component of the soil microbial population. So, the aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of single and dual inoculation of Bacillus spp with Glomus intraradices along with 75% RDF on growth and yield parameters of ragi. The treatment with both strains of Bacillus and G. intraradices showed the highest plant growth parameters like plant hight, number of tillers, Chlorphyll content, Root length and also the treatment with Glomus intraradices showed the highest percent root colonization and spore count at 75 days after transplanting of 90.23% and 178.53% respectively. This is because of the availability of the nutrients uptake, protection of plants against pathogens and mitigation of abiotic stresses like drought, salinity etc. through dual inoculation compared to single inoculation of either Bacillus spp or Glomus intraradices alone.
