Résumé partiel
Due to increasing incidence of climate change, the time is opportune for identifying such crops that are able to tolerate adverse environmental conditions, without having a significant effect on their growth and development. Finger millet (Eleusine coracana L.) is one of them, being a hardy crop it is relatively easy to grow under stressful regimes, without hampering the net productivity. The crop finger millet is being cultivated in the Himalayan region by the traditional hill farmers as life support plant species from time immemorial. Finger millet characteristically adapt to unfavourable ecological conditions including biotic and abiotic stresses. Diseases and insects pests’problems have been negligible in such hardy crops. However, with changing climate, it is now known to be affected by several diseases and their lives are exposed to numerous abiotic stresses viz., drought, uncertainty in rains, flood etc. In view of this, a repository of 42 fluorescent Pseudomonas isolates was established with a particular reference for improving seed performance, management of diseases and delay in drought response of finger millet. All the isolates were morphologically and biochemically characterized.
