Abstract—Soil salinity is one of the most serious environmental problem. An attempt is made to isolate salt-tolerant phosphate solubilizing bacterium from the soil. The bacterial isolate was identified as Bacillus subtilis based on its morphological, cultural and biochemical characteristics. The phosphate solubilizing potential was qualitatively evaluated by the formation of clear zones around the colonies growing on solid medium containing tribasic calcium phosphate as a sole phosphorus source. The results showed that salt tolerant phosphate solubilizing bacterial isolate could be a promising source for the development of saline-alkali soil-based agriculture. 

Index Terms—salt tolerant, phosphate soil salinity solubilization, calcium phosphate
