Abstract 

Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) strains were isolated from locality of Eastern Uttar Pradesh. These isolated strains were biochemically and molecularly characterized through partial sequencing of 16S rDNA gene analysis and submitted in NCBI-GenBank with different accession number. The tetra-inoculants of R. leguminosarum + A. chroococcum + P. aeruginosa + T. harzianum showed more significant nodulation, biomass dry weight, grain yield and nutrient uptake followed by tri-inoculants of R. leguminosarum + A. chroococcum + P. aeruginosa and R. leguminosarum + A. chroococcum + T. harzianum than uninoculated control. It was found significant plant growth and yield due to the plant growth promoting activities such as fixation of atmospheric nitrogen (R. leguminosarum, A. chroococcum), production of siderophores, HCN, solubilization of minerals such as phosphorus, and synthesis of phytohormones and suppression of phytopathogens (P. aeruginosa, T. harzianum). Therefore, the tetra-inoculants (R. leguminosarum + A. chroococcum + P. aeruginosa + T. harzianum) should be used as effective biofertilizer for chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) production under sustainable agriculture in Indo-Gangatic plans of eastern Uttar Pradesh, India.
