Microbial Characterization of Sulphate Oxidizing Bacteria Isolated from Cattle Manure Compost

Authors(3) :-J.Jamuna Devi, R. Dhandapani, V. Lavanya

The current study includes the collection, isolation and characterization of sulphate oxidizing bacteria from the cattle manure compost dumpings from Namakkal district. Thereafter, three different sulphate oxidizing bacterial isolates such as Bacillus sp, Klebsiella sp, Pseudomonas so etc were isolated. The sulphate oxidation by these bacteria was optimized and it estimated quantitatively. The present study was aimed in studying the application of sulphate oxidizing bacteria as biofertilizers. Also, if the cattle manure compost studied are used as biofertilizers they would improve and enhance the soil vitality and fertility. They would be a best alternative for chemical fertilizers.
