With the objective to investigate the possible use of bacterial IAA, IBA in plant tissue culture as well as pre-treatment of legumes with or without Rhizobium this study is done. Bacterial isolates having characteristic production ability to produce Indole Acetic acid (IAA) and Indol Butyric acid (IBA) were isolated. Production of these two plant growth promoting substances (PGPS) is done and its effect on chick pea (Cicer arietinum) germination and tissue culture explants of Banana, turmeric, pineapple is done along with the standard synthetic IAA & IBA. Bacterial PGPS have been evaluated along with commercially available PGPS like IAA, IBA, which are commonly used in plant tissue culture. Secondly, pre-treatment of seeds with bacterial IAA and/ IBA along with Rhizobium has been evaluated for growth response of the plant. MKB (Bacterial IBA, by MK BioFa isolate 13w) treatment along with Rhizobium showed maximum plant height, in Chick pea trial. In case of trials with Banana and Turmeric explants, shoot height, leaf number and leaf size increased remarkably with treatment of MKA as well as MKB. MKA, MKB treatment also favoured longer root length.

Keywords: IAA,IBA,auxins,Phytohormones, multiplication, chick pea.
