Under iron-limiting conditions, many bacteria secrete ferric iron-specific ligands, generically
termed siderophores, which aid in sequestering and transport of iron. We report here the production
of siderophores by selected plant growth promoting rhizobacteria. Production of siderophores by plant
growth promoting rhizobacteria was detected via the chrome azurol S assay, a general test for
siderophores, which is independent of siderophore structure.
