Effect of Bioinoculation silicate solubilizing bacteria in augmenting the plant height and biocontrol of blast Incidence in low land rice
Silicon nutrition and blast disease incidence are the key factors that most frequently limit the productivity of low land rice crop. The present work was carried out to study the bioinoculation effect of different formulations of silicate solubilizing bacteria(SSB) isolate together with organic rice residues supplementation for the augmentation of plant growthand ISR mediated biocontrol against Pyriculariaoryzae in lowland rice crop. The results revealed that the application of SSB isolate in the form of biofloc (natural) along with organic siliceous material and challenge inoculation of P. oryzaeaugmented the plant height and reduced the plant disease incidence to a maximum level followed by treatment SSB alone.
