Rhizospheric Bacteria with the Potential for Biological Control of Parthenium hysterophorus

Vishwas Shankar Patil

Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

Partenium hysterophorus is a serious weed of the country. Parthenium weed decreases the primary agricultural production and also causes health problems in humans and animals. The use of microorganisms as a biological agent for weed control is a recent approach and is gaining importance. Deleterious rhizospheric bacteria have potential to suppress plant growth. Rhizospheric bacteria were isolated from seedlings and mature plants of Parthenium hysterophorus. Rhizobacterial isolates were tested to inhibit the growth of target weed species and crop plants under laboratory conditions. Three bacterial isolates were found to be promising and were further tested on weed and crop plants under glasshouse conditions.
