In addition, plants possess the ability to select their own root microflora from the surrounding soil. Solubilization of insoluble potassium and phosphate by Paenibacillus kribensis CX-7: a soil microorganism with biological control potential. Res. It is generally believed that microorganisms contribute to the release of K+ from K-bearing minerals by several mechanisms. Total soil potassium reserves are generally large; however, major portion of it exists in insoluble K minerals and very little potassium becomes available to plants. Application of chemical fertilizers has a considerably negative impact on environmental sustainability. Biofertilizers, being cost effective, non-toxic, and eco-friendly, serve as a good substitute for expensive and harmful chemical fertilizers. Biofilm formation on aluminosilicate increases the residence time of water as compared to the residence time at the bare rock or mineral surface and enhances the mineral weathering. This approach is more sustainable than conventional fertilization practices, which may contribute to reducing climate change linked to agricultural activity. health. Attempts have been made to use of K mobilizing bacteria for solubilizing K from different K bearing minerals (Meena et al., 2016) and hence to improve plant nutrition. Biol. Lett. Owing to naturally available source of potassium in soil and high price of synthetic potassium fertilizers, the importance of KSB is increasing day by day. Sinica. Potassium fixation Potassium is the major nutrient, which imparts increased vigour and disease resistance to plants and improves the quality of final products. have been reported in KSB, which are effective in releasing K from K-bearing minerals (Hu et al., 2006; Keshavarz Zarjani et al., 2013; Krishnamurthy, 1989; Liu et al., 2012; Prajapati et al., 2012; Prajapati et al., 2013; Saiyad et al., 2015; Sheng and He, 2006). forms hinders its utility for plant growth. 52, 66-72. The inoculation of weathering bacteria in soil or plants, especially combined with the use of crushed rocks, can increase soil fertility and improve crop production. In order to feed the increasing world population, agriculture must be intensive and sustainable in the future. Plant Growth-Promoting Bacteria: Mechanisms and Applications. Arch. Hence, the production and management of biological fertilizers containing KSB can be an effective alternative to chemical fertilizers. Effects of Type of Clay and Moisture: Type 1:1 clays fix a small amount of potassium while 2:1 clays fix K in large quantities. [ Links ], Meena, V.S., Maurya, B.R., Verma, J.P. 2014. The potassium solubilizing microorganisms (KSMs) are a rhizospheric microorganism which solubilizes the insoluble potassium (K) to soluble forms of K for plant growth and yield. On the basis of K-solublization, the seven most efficient KSB strains were evaluated for K-solublizing dynamics from the WB at 7, 14 and 21 DAI (days after incubation) on MAMs (Modified Solid Aleksandrov Medium). Bacillus licheniformis BHU18 produced significantly higher (~ 23 µg mL-1) concentrations of indole-3-acetic acid. [ Links ], Sangeeth, K.P., Bhai, R.S., Srinivasan, V. 2012. A number of workers have demonstrated the role of KSB in crop improvement. The higher yield was obtained with combined P and K treatment under non-saline irrigation. [ Links ], Bakhshandeh, E., Pirdashti, H., Lendeh, K.S. [ Links ], Sheng, X.F., Zhao, F., He, L.Y., Qiu, G., Chen, L. 2008. Most of the farmers use only nitrogen and phosphorus and not the K fertilizer due to unawareness that the problem of K deficiency occurs in rhizospheric soils. The P addition had significant bearing on the soil pH, SAR, [P], [SO4], [CO3] and [HCO3] and Ca:P, Cl:P and SO4:P ratios in leachates. Springer. Biotechnol. All rights reserved. 2010.

However, the KSMs are most important microorganisms for solubilizing of fixed form of K in soil system. was independent of the growth medium and likely relates to antifungal lipopeptides. J. Total K content in soils ranges between 0.04 and 3% K. Although K is present as an abundant element in soil, only 1 to 2 % of this element is available to plants (Sparks and Huang, 1985). Overall, we showed that sample source was not a predominant factor that limited the application of FAP-ROTAX, but poor taxonomic identification was. It has been postulated that the reduction of inhibitory transmission during status epilepticus results from a rapid modification of GABAA receptors. World j. Microbiol. Biochem. When soil has low levels of exchangeable K (Kex), nonexchangeable (Knex) will diffuse from the soil clay layers and add to Kex levels. KSB are usually present in all soils and have been isolated from rhizosphere soil, non-rhizosphere soil, paddy soil (Bakhshandeh et al., 2017) and saline soil (Bhattacharya et al., 2016). However, the mechanism(s) that contributes to this modification has not been elucidated. Potassium fixation often occurs when soils dry and the potassium is bonded between layers of 2:1 expansive clay minerals such as illite, vermiculite or montmorillonite. 39, 863-871.

The equilibrium for fixed soil NH 4 + ions is based on a scheme for K+. Environ. It had been reported that inoculation with KSB produced beneficial effect on growth of different plants (Ahmad et al., 2016; Bakhshandeh et al., 2017; Xiao et al., 2017). Microbial decomposition of organic materials also produces ammonia and hydrogen sulfide that can be oxidized in the soil to form the strong acids such as nitric acid (HNO3) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4). The above studies show that KSB can provide an alternative technology to make K available for uptake by plants. For example, when P was applied to alfalfa, nod-ules developed earlier. 2013. [ Links ], Cecílio Filho, A.B., Feltrim, A.L., Mendoza Cortez, J.W., Gonsalves, M.V., Pavani, L.C., Barbosa, J.C. 2015. It has been reported that the production of various extracellular polymers (primarily proteins and polysaccharides) can also be led to release of K from K-bearing minerals for plant uptake (Liu et al., 2006; Shelobolina et al., 2012; Sheng and He, 2006). Plant Nutr. J. Spic. Biosci. For example, it was reported that KSB weathered phlogopite via aluminum chelation and acidic dissolution of the crystal network (Abou-el-Seoud and Abdel-Megeed, 2012; Leyval and Berthelin, 1989; Uroz et al., 2009).In addition, The B. altitudinis strain could accelerate weathering of potash feldspar, change mineral surface morphology, and induce the formation of new mineral complex. 8, e55731.

The study investigated the effects of poultry and goat manures on the kinetics of potassium fixation and release in some sandy loam and loamy soils of Ogun Potassium solubilizing rhizobacteria (KSR): Isolation, identification, and K-release dynamics from waste mica. Parmar (2010) showed that inoculation of K-solubilizing isolate HWP47 in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) var. release from feldspar affected by the sprain Nbt . L11. Standard curve for quantification of K is prepared using various concentrations of KCl solution (Hu et al., 2006). In agriculture, beneficial bacteria are defined as any bacteria that colonize the roots of plants following inoculation onto seed and improve plant growth by increasing seed emergence, plant weight, and crop yields. The ability to solubilize the silicate rocks by B. mucilaginosus, B. circulanscan, B. edaphicus, Burkholderia, A. ferrooxidans, Arthrobacter sp., Enterobacter hormaechei, Paenibacillus mucilaginosus, P. frequentans, Cladosporium, Aminobacter, Sphingomonas, Burkholderia, and Paenibacillus glucanolyticus has been reported (Meena et al., 2016).

The use of chemical fertilizers can be decreased by using KSB in agriculture that can lead to sustainable agriculture. Majority of the isolates were entire smooth margin, raised, translucent, gram +ve rods and whitish to creamy in appearance. The addition of K significantly affected [Na], [K] and K:Na ratio in shoot. As surrounding cells […] Nitrogen is changed to ammonia by... PHOSPHATE SOLUBILIZATION. The KSB are effective in releasing K from inorganic and insoluble pools of total soil K through solubilization (Archana et al., 2013; Gundala et al., 2013; Keshavarz Zarjani et al., 2013; Meena et al., 2014; Meena et al., 2015b; Parmar and Sindhu, 2013; Saha et al., 2016; Zeng et al., 2012; Zhang et al., 2013). Therefore, soil-grown plants are immersed in a sea of microorganisms especially bacteria (Glick, 2012). For example, (i) lack of awareness about bio-fertilizers amongst the farmers; (ii) slow influence of the K bio-fertilizer on crop yield; (iii) less interest in scientific community on the development of K bio-fertilizer technologies; (iv) culture collection banks not yet developed for KSB due to the loss of efficient strains developed by scientists; and (v) and deficiency in technology in respect to carrier suitability and product formulations are some of the major limitations of the industry, which need to be improved in the near future. Effect of microbial and other naturally occurring polymers on mineral dissolution. Action mechanisms of KSB in solubilizing K. Currently there is little information available on the mechanisms which by KSB can solubilize K-bearing minerals and release K for improving the growth and yield of plant. Potassium fixation, K f, was calculated by the difference between total initial K and total final exchangeable plus soluble K in a given system and compared to ΔCEC, the decreases in the initial cation exchange capacity (CEC in). Plant soil. 2012. Previous researches well showed that KSB were able to dissolve K from different insoluble K bearing minerals by excreting organic acids.

The results of both experiments indicate that the values of all measured parameters were higherwhen rice seedlings were inoculated with P. ananatis than withEnterobacter sp. Electron contrast has been shown to be produced by the deposition of granular material in the tissue. In this study, 16 cultivable potential KSB were isolated from rape rhizosphere at first. incubation in modified Aleksandrov medium containing powdered waste mica as sole source of potassium. This review presents the recent advances and applications made hitherto in understanding the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of plant-microbe interactions and their role in the major processes involved in phytoremediation, such as heavy metal detoxification, mobilization, immobilization, transformation, transport and distribution. 2000. Besides, biofilm formation on mineral surface promoted the corrosion of potassium-rich shale and the release of K, Si and Al in the bacteria-mineral contact model (Man et al., 2014). [ Links ], Singh, G., Biswas, D.R., Marwaha, T.S. Sheng, X.F., He, L.Y. Under certain conditions, dependent on the soil texture, intensity of drying, and initial amount of exchangeable potassium, the fixed percentage may be as much as 90 percent within ten minutes. (2006) reported that application of KSB with K- and P-bearing minerals on sorghum enhanced dry matter yield by 48 %, 65 %, and 58 %; phosphorus uptake by 71 %, 110 %, and 116 %; and K uptake by 41 %, 93 %, and 79 % in clay, sandy, and calcareous soils, respectively. Effect of KSB on plant growth and yield. With the introduction of high yielding crop varieties and the progressive intensification of agriculture, the soils are getting exhausted in K stock at a faster rate. 2016. Approaches for drought stress alleviations are breeding strategies, molecular and genomics perspectives with special emphasis on the omics technology alteration i.e., metabo-lomics, proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics, glyomics and phenomics that improve the stress tolerance in plants. Currently, several management practices are available K-solubilization is carried out by a large number of saprophytic bacteria (Bacillus mucilaginosus, B. edaphicus, B. circulans, Acidothiobacillus ferrooxidans, Paenibacillus spp.) (2016) suggested a modified plate assay for rapid screening of KSB. This mechanism, the so‐called ‘potassium battery’, serves as a mobile energy source to overcome local ATP‐shortages and maintain the efficiency of the long‐distance transport system (Gajdanowicz et al. [ Links ], de Zelicourt, A., Al-Yousif, M., Hirt, H. 2013. Potassium fixation Potassium is the major nutrient, which imparts increased vigour and disease resistance to plants and improves the quality of final products. Sikkim is located in northeast India Agri. Salt accumulation inhibits plant growth and reduces the ability to uptake water and nutrients, leading to osmotic or water-deficit stress. However, it is well known that the food production by agriculture cannot be generally sustained unless the nutrients removed from soil as a result of increased crop production are replaced. Prominent cropping system in the state is rice and maize based, 15, 1-10. Potassium (K) is one of the major macronutrients which play an important role in plant growth and development. Influence of salinity on transport of Nitrates and Potassium by means of the xylem sap content between roots and shoots in young tomato plants. KS of the isolates increased as pH of the culture medium declined (r = −0.83, P < 0.0053), asa result of organic acid production. Certain microorganisms render them soluble and make them available to the plants. The present investigation comprises a total of fifty potassium solubilizing bacterial (KSB) strains which were isolated from Oryza sativa, Musa paradisiaca, Zea mays, Sorghum bicolor and Triticum aestivum L. These strains were evaluated for their ability to solubilize the fixed K from waste biotite (WB). Meena, V.S., Maurya, B.R., Bahadur, I. Agron. All other root parameters were significantly affected by the K addition. Biotechnol. KSB isolates from Inceptisol showed higher K solubilization potential than isolates from Alfisol.

Many bacteria such as Acidothiobacillus ferrooxidans, Paenibacillus spp., Bacillus mucilaginosus, B. edaphicus, and B. circulans have capacity to solubilize K minerals (e.g., biotite, feldspar, illite, muscovite, orthoclase, and mica). 2015. [ Links ], Raj, S.A., Kannaiyan, S., Kumar, K., Govindarajan, K. 2004. Based on the knowledge generated up to now, we suggest several future avenues of research approaches: (i) KSB have been rarely studied under field conditions. Feeding a growing world population, as projected to reach 9 billion by 2050, adopting more efficient and sustainable production methods, responding to increased concerns about managing the natural resources, and adapting to climate change and drought conditions in several developing regions (notably in Europe, Central Asia and the Horn of Africa) are some of the significant challenges that agriculture will face in the 21st century (Haub et al., 2012). In general, the most important mechanisms known in K mineral solubilization by KSB are "(i) by lowering the pH; (ii) by enhancing chelation of the cations bound to K; and (iii) acidolysis of the surrounding area of microorganism (Meena et al., 2014)". The present study focused on overview on current trends, K-solubilizing mechanism and ability for growth promotion along with their present constraint and future scope to achieve sustainable agriculture production. and high humidity in the Sikkim Himalayan region causes enormous Potassium Fixation and Its Significance for California Crop Production Figure 1.
