Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore to find out the effect of beneficial microorganisms on nursery plant production of crossandra (<em>Crossandra infundibuliformis </em>(L.) Nees) cv. Bangalore local. On analyzing total N, P, K and phytochemical content of the leaves in crossandra seedlings, it was observed that the total nitrogen (3.450 %) and total potassium (3.416 %) were observed highest in <em>Methylobacterium</em> sp. (PPFM) @ 2 % volume. <em>Methylobacterium</em> sp. (PPFM) @ 1 % volume (3.420 %) was on par with each other in total nitrogen content. Total phosphorous in leaf was observed highest (0.550 %) in <em>Bacillus amyloliquefaciens</em> @ 2 % volume. Total chlorophyll content was recorded highest in <em>Methylobacterium</em> sp. (PPFM) @ 2 % volume (8.836 mg g<sup>-1</sup>). The highest quantity of leaf soluble protein (120.740 mg g<sup>-1</sup>) and total sugar (26.500 mg g<sup>-1</sup>) was recorded in <em>Bacillus amyloliquefaciens</em> @ 1 % volume. The highest quantity of total phenol (5.750 mg g<sup>-1</sup>) and proline (9.08 mg g<sup>-1</sup>) was recorded in <em>Bacillus amyloliquefaciens</em> @ 2 % volume. The results of the experiment indicates that <em>Methylobacterium</em> sp. followed by <em>Bacillus amyloliquefaciens</em> were suitable microbes for utilizing in the nursery plants production of crossandra.
