Review on Role of Phosphate Solubilizing Microorganisms in Sustainable Agriculture

Most of soil microorganisms are known for their ability to solubilize insoluble phosphorous compounds for releasing soluble phosphate to make phosphorous available for plant absorption. Releasement of this soluble phosphorous is very important in increasing plant growth and plant product yields. Inoculating plant seeds with phosphate solubilizing microorganisms is very effective and environmentally useful to decrease the side effect of chemical fertilizers on soil microbes and other org...

Antimicrobial Activity, Chemical Compositions and Proximate Analysis of Ixora Coccinea L. Leaves on Some Clinical Pathogens

Plants derived bioactive compounds have been the centre of recent owing to their health promoting effects. An attempt was made in evaluating the phytochemical, minerals, proximate and anti-microbial activity of analyses standard agar well diffusion method saponins, tannins, flavon minerals analysis revealed the presence of manganese and phosphorus. Highest mineral content was recorded in magnesium (21. Proximate analysis showed the presence of ash (10.3%), moisture (7.10%), protein (16.45%),...

Comparative Study Between the Eect of Parkia Biglobosa (JACQ) benth and Conventional Antibiotics Against Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Uropathogenic Bacteria (MARUB)

The purpose of this work is to compare the effect of convectional antibiotics with medicinal plant (Parkia biglobosa (Jacq.)Benth) against multiple antibiotics resistant Uropathogenic bacteria isolates.(MARUB), which was isolated from basically two hospital in Ondo State, Nigeria. The two hospitals are Gani Fawehinmi Diagnostic center, Ondo and Federal Medical Center, Owo between July, 2017 and October, 2017. fifty two (52) Gram negative bacteria isolated from urine of UTIs patient at the Ga...

Antibacterial Activity of Garlic (ALLIUM SATIVUM) on Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli

The study was carried out to evaluate the antibacterial potential of ethanolic and aqueous extracts of Garlic on Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli by serial dilution in molten agar. The result of the study showed that both aqueous and ethanolic extracts inhibited the growth of the test organisms and hence their potential for the development of novel classes of antibiotics.
