Pot culture experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of some promising microbial isolates for their ability for potash solubilization in soil as well as to see their effects on growth and yield attributes in brinjal. The laboratory stock cultures [KSB-W1 (Bacillus sp) KSB-PD-3-A (Bacillus sp), KSB-NP-3 (Bacillus sp), KSB-PD-1-A (Pseudomonas sp), KSB-M-1 (Pseudomonas sp), KSB-M-2 (Pseudomonas sp), KSB-PD (Sinorhizobium metallidans), KSB-PD-1-B (Sinorhizobium metallidans), KSB-M-3 (Sinorhizobium metallidans)] from All India Network Project on Soil Biodiversity-Biofertilizers, VNMKV Parbhani and SKUAST, Kashmir were selected on the basis of their potash solubilizing ability in laboratory condition and used for pot culture. The results immerged out indicated that inoculation of potassium solubilizing microbial isolates considerably enhanced the growth parameters and potassium in brinjal when compared to uninoculated control. Change in plant height and number of leaves was produced significantly highest when inoculation was done with Pseudomonas sp (KSB-PD-1-A), which was found to be at par with the bacterial strain Pseudomonas sp (KSB-M-1) and Pseudomonas sp (KSB-M-2). The highest improvement in root and shoot dry weight and potassium was noted in Pseudomonas sp (KSB-PD-1-A) and Pseudomonas sp (KSB-M-1) treated pots.

Keywords: Microbial isolates, Clearing zone, Potassium solubilization, Brinjal, growth attributes, Root characters, Potassium uptake.
