Effect of bioinoculation on plastochron interval and root surface area of the seedlings of Oroxylum indicum (L.) Benth. ex Kurz

Oroxylum indicum is a medicinally important forest tree species. This species is categorized as vulnerable as well as endangered in different parts of India due to over exploitation of whole plant for medicinal uses. Therefore, its conservation is must and on this aspect an experiment was performed to see the effect of bioinoculation on theContinue reading “Effect of bioinoculation on plastochron interval and root surface area of the seedlings of Oroxylum indicum (L.)

Comparative Study of soil nutrients and carbon pool under Sal growing in Assam and Doon Valley

Sal forest of Assam and Uttarakhand shows that the soils have similar chemical and physical characteristics except for Potassium concentration, which is slightly higher in the Assam soil as compared to the Uttarakhand soil. Differences in available nitrogen and phosphorus was statistically non significant between the soil samples of Assam and Uttarakhand. In general, itContinue reading “Comparative Study of soil nutrients and carbon pool under Sal growing in Assam and Doon Valley”

Seed source and habitat variation affect seed germination in Oroxylum indicum (L.) Benth. ex Kurz: An important threatened medicinal tree

Abstract : Oroxylum indicum is an important medicinal plant of Indian Ayurvedic medicine system. The natural population of the plant is nearing to its threshold of extinction. Therefore, its conservation is must and on this aspect an experiment was performed to see the effect of different seed sources and habitats under a single eco-region ofContinue reading “Seed source and habitat variation affect seed germination in Oroxylum indicum (L.)

Rhizospheric Inoculation Influence on Seedling Growth, Development and Biomass Yield in Oroxylum indicum (L.) Benth. ex Kurz

Oroxylum indicum is a medicinally important forest tree species. Due toindiscriminate exploitation for medicinal purpose, habitat destruction, the natural population of O. indicum is reported endangered. Therefore an experiment was conducted to to study the effect of bioinoculation on the growth and quality of the seedlingsand conserve the plant species. The seedlings were inoculated withContinue reading “Rhizospheric Inoculation Influence on Seedling Growth, Development and Biomass Yield in Oroxylum indicum (L.) Benth. ex Kurz”

Bioinoculants influence accumulation of phytochemicals in Oroxylum indicum (L.) Benth. ex Kurz seedlings

Abstract The seedlings of Oroxylum indicum were inoculated with plant growth promoting microbes (PGPMs) mainly, Pseudomonas putida, Trichoderma harzianum and Glomus mosseae both alone and consortium. The preliminary qualitative and quantitative phytochemical analysis of the root extract of the inoculated seedlings of O. indicum showed the presence of carbohydrates, protein, saponins, tannins, alkaloids, phenols, flavonoids,Continue reading “Bioinoculants influence accumulation of phytochemicals in Oroxylum indicum (L.)

Comparative Soil Nutrient Status and Microbiota Associated in the Rhizosphere of Oroxylum indicum growing in Different Natural Habitat in North East India

Abstract The rhizospheric soil samples were collected from five different sites of Northeast India where Oroxylum indicum was naturally growing in its ecological habitat and were analysed. A total of 25 fungal species and four bacterial isolates were found to be associated in the rhizosphere of O.indicum. The fungal microbiota comprised mainly of Trichoderma harzianum,Continue reading “Comparative Soil Nutrient Status and Microbiota Associated in the Rhizosphere of Oroxylum indicum growing in Different Natural Habitat in North East India”

The Soil Nutrient Content Alters Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Association in Oroxylum Indicum (L.) Benth. ex Kurz Growing Under Different Natural Habitat in North East India

The rhizospheric soil and roots were collected from five different sites of Northeast India, where Oroxylum indicum was naturally growing in its ecological habitat and were analysed. The study revealed that the roots of O. indicum were colonized with AM spores and the soil nutrient content plays a major role in the colonization of theContinue reading “The Soil Nutrient Content Alters Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Association in Oroxylum Indicum (L.)
