Abstract

The Streptomyces sp. TC1 having antimicrobial activity against bacterial leaf blight pathogen was screened for their growth promoting substances production properties. The isolate showed the tendency to produced IAA at the concentration of 4.33 µg/mL and siderophores at the concentration of 5.87 µg/mL. The strain showed production of both hydroxymate and catechol type of siderophores.
