An attempt has been made to evaluate siderophore and biocontrol activities in Rhizobia were isolated from non-traditional leguminous crops cowpea, moth and guar from various regions of Madhya Pradesh. Siderophore activity was achieved by chrome azurol sulfonate (CAS) assay, a universal siderophore detection method. Formation of orange halos in blue agar plates confirmed the CAS assay and comparison of halos diameter of Rhizobial strain revealed that only two strains R-3 and R-8 were effective in siderophore production from eight Rhizobial strain and only one isolate R-6 showed biocontrol activity against two fungal strains R. solanii and S. sclerotiorum.

Key words: Biocontrol activity, Rhizobium and Siderophore.
