 ABSTRACT

The present study was conducted to know the Synergistic effect of endophytic bacteria and Bradyrhizobium sp. on growth of Greengram. Endophytic bacteria were isolated from three different parts of green gram namely, root, nodule and seed. After the characterization and compatibility studies three efficient endophytes were taken for further pot culture studies to study their effect on growth of greengram. There was a significant difference between the treatments. The values for plant height, germination percentage, root and shoot length, dry matter of greengram, nodule number, nodule fresh and dry weight were recorded highest in T13 which received the inoculation of  root endophytic bacteria + seed endophytic bacteria + nodule endophytic bacteria + Bradyrhizobium sp. when compared to T1 (control) and T2 (Bradyrhizobium). It is evident that the co-inoculation of root, nodule and seed endophyte along with Bradyrhizobium sp. encourages more robust crop with better plant health, disease resistance, biomass and ability to cope with environmental stresses.

Keywords: Synergistic effect, Endophyte, Bradyrhizobium.
