Abstract

The application of rhizobial cells for improving pigeon pea fitness has been practiced for ages. As cell-based approaches have limitations, the focus is on the usage of cell-free formulations. In the present study exopolysaccharide (EPS) producing, plant health promoting Bradyrhizobium sp. IC-4059 was monitored for its biocontrol potential against Fusarium udum. Strain IC-4059, its EPS, and supernatant antagonized F.udum by 52.6%, 20.5%, and 48.1%, respectively in comparison to control. Diverse formulations prepared using EPS, supernatant, and cells of strain IC-4059 were: EPS based, supernatant based, IC-4059 liquid culture (rhizobia based), dual combination (IC-4059 cells + supernatant; IC-4059 cells + EPS; EPS + supernatant), and triple combination (IC-4059 cells + supernatant + EPS). The potency of these bioformulations was observed under in planta tubes followed by in vivo pot study, both in F.udum infested and non-infested sets taking pigeon pea cultivar UPAS-120 as a model crop. The study highlighted that seeds receiving triple combination exhibited significantly higher plant growth attributes, nodule enhancing, and disease suppressing activity in comparison to individual application of Bradyrhizobium.
