Abstract
Chickpea seeds and seedlings were treated with Rhizobium leguminosarum, Phosphate solubilizing bacteria, Pseudomonas and Effective microorganisms (EM) and Bokashi alone and in combinations. Plants were harvested during vegetative phase to determine chlorophyll, sugar, protein and the antioxidant enzymes, catalase and peroxidase and endogenous level of phytohormones from leaves of chickpea. Treatment with EM alone and in combination with Bokashi increased the shoot biomass, number of nodules, chlorophyll content, sugar content, peroxidase and catalase activity. Rhizobium used alone and in various combinations with EM and Bokashi exhibited significant increase over control. All the treatments exhibited significant increase in IAA and GA content of leaves. Combined treatment with R and EM can be implicated for crop improvement.
