Isolation identification and characterization of bacteria (Rhizobium) from chick pea (Cicer arietinum) and production of biofertilizer


Debojyoti Roychowdhury, Manibrata Paul, Sudip Kumar Banerjee

The main purpose of this research paper is to isolate bacteria (Rhizobium) as a nitrogen fixing bacteria from root nodules of chickrnpea (Cicer arietinum) and its identification, characterization and hence the production of biofertilizer from it after growing it in thernselective media and finally mass producing the bacteria and mixing it with carrier materials for further utilization in the soils tornincrease its nutrient quality naturally after combining it with the soil. Nitrogen is one of the important component which acts as arnbuilding blocks of most biomolecules but this inert nitrogen cannot be utilized by plants so the Rhizobium bacteria helps to fix thernatmospheric nitrogen to ammonia which can be utilized by plants so the production of biofertilizer from this bacterial strains are thernmain focus in this paper.
