Abstract: In the present study, seventeen bacterial isolates isolated from the rhizosphere of vegetable crops from different location of Jammu region. Out of seventeen isolates, seven isolates were identified to be Pseudomonas sp on the basis of their cultural, morphological and biochemical characters. To evaluate the efficacy of these isolates in respect to their plant growth promoting activity, the isolates were inoculated by seedling dip method and the result showed the significant increase in root and shoot length, root fresh and dry weight and shoot fresh and dry weight of brinjal plant in all the treatments as compared to control. Among the treatments, the plants inoculated with isolate 15 (I15) showed the maximum plant growth promoting activity followed by the isolate I-14. The screened isolates can thus be advantageously used in organic farming of brinjal.
