Abstract

The gram positive, endospore forming bacteria belonging to the genus Bacillus are found in most of the rhizospheric soils. One such isolate UHI(II)7 was found from the rhizospheric soil of Ocimum sp. from the vicinity of Haridwar, Uttarakhand (India) and was identified as Bacillus licheniformis. This isolate has shown to exhibit multiple plant growth promoting characteristics/traits. This isolate possess PGP traits such as ammonia production, indole acetic acid production, phosphate solubilization, catalase production, heavy metal tolerance and ACC deaminase activity. These plant growth promoting abilities can make this isolate a potential PGPR candidate for its application in sustainable agriculture.
