Carrier-based tripartite bacterial consortia promote growth of Lycopersicon esculentum L.

An appropriate formulation of bacterial inoculum is required to enhance the productivity of plants in field. Sawdust,
sugarcane-bagasse and charcoal were used as solid carriers to enhance the shelf-life of bioinoculants.Plant growth promoting
rhizobacteria (PGPR) screened from tomato rhizosphere were characterised and identified on the basis of carbon source
utilization by comparing with standard bacterial cultures and UPGMA cluster analysis using MVSP software version 3.2.

Keywords: PGPR, Pseudomonas, Azotobacter, Bacillus, Consortium, Carrier, Lycopesicon esculentum
