    Abstract :

    Abstract : Experimental studies have been carried out to find the application of bacteria culture to control the pollution of agricultural lands by extensive use of insecticide and pesticide by the farmers to protect their crops. For this, two bacterial strains, Enterobacter sp.,named Zs57, and Pseudomonas sp., named Es20, having NCBI accession number KC169992 and KCL169988 has been used after isolated from cow dung. It can degrade calcium phytate, chlorpyrios, methayl-parathion and phorate. It has also been seen that molybdenum salt can act as the catalyst for enhancement of phorate degradation. Different types of tests, like- pH measurement, phosphate solubilizing efficiency test, Quantative estimation of soluble phosphate , Kinetics for Bio-degradation of phorate, Plant growth promotion test, Bio-fertilizer test and analysis like- Biochemical characterization, and LC-MS analysis have been done to find the application of bacteria to biodegrade toxic water –insoluble organophosphorus compounds so that pollution of the agricultural lands can be controlled. Data of the Results have been analyzed and discussed.
