ABSTRACT:
Banana's and plantains (Musa spp) forms fourth most important food in the world next to rice, wheat and maize. The present study was initiated to isolate and identify the phosphate solubilizing fungi (PSF) from the banana rhizosphere and to study the influence of application of graded doses of PSF on initial growth and development of banana, to study the effect of PSF on phosphate solubilization and soil and leaf nutrient concentrations on the growth of young tissue cultured banana plants of CV. According to the laboratory experiment of P solubilization it was found that the fungi have more efficiency to solubilize the P than Bacteria. Hence there is need to develop the strain of fungi as P fertilizer, also the application of the biofertilizer prepared by fungi should be helpful to reduce the salinity of soil neutralization phenomenon, because these microorganisms release the acids in very minute quantity in P solubilization.
