Seed bacterialization induced proline content in Sorghum bicolor crop under severe drought condition
Author(s): Kalindee S Shinde and SG Borkar
Abstract: The sorghum seed bacterialization with four moisture stress tolerance (MST) rhizobacterial isolates viz., Serratia marcescens L1SC8, Pseudomonas putida L3SC1, Enterobacter cloacae L1CcC1 and Serratia marcescens L2FmA4 were found beneficial to mitigate drought stress effect in sorghum (Sorghum biocolor L). This was attributed to the increase in osmolytes i.e. proline accumulation. The proline in leaves of sorghum plants raised from bacterized seed increased significantly over control at severe drought condition where soil moisture was in the range of 8 to 20%. At soil moisture percent of 20.37%, 17.21% and 8.83%, the proline increase was 0.80 – 0.192 µmoles g-1, 0.234 – 0.365 µmoles g-1 and 0.138 – 0.373 µmoles g-1 respectively over the control.
