Abstract

Rice genotypes Pant Dhan-6, Pusa Basmati-1 and UPRBS92-4 of agronomic significance were screened for the presence of endophytic bacteria. Limited morphological diversity was observed after dilution plating of surface sterile root and shoot tissues. This was confirmed by the Shannon diversity index, i.e. 1.34, 1.30 and 0.97 for Pant Dhan-6, Pusa Basmati-1 and UPRBS92-4 respectively. Seven bacterial isolates showing antagonism against Rhizoctonia solani were assessed for phylogenetic analysis using PCR-based techniques.
