Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria with gibberellins (GA)-producing potential were isolated from soil and screened for plant growth promotion. A new strain, Acinetobacter calcoaceticus SE370, produced extracellular GA and also had phosphate solubilising potential. It produced 10 different gibberellins, including the bioactive GA(1), GA(3) and GA(4) which were at, respectively, 0.45, 6.2 and 2.8 ng/100 ml. The isolate solubilised tricalcium phosphate and lowered pH of the medium during the process. Culture filtrates of the organism after growth on broth promoted growth of cucumber, Chinese cabbage and crown daisy.
