  The survey of medicinal plants was conducted in different areas of Rawalpindi district. A total of fifteen plant species from thirteen different families were studied for their therapeutic potential. There were eight trees, two shrubs and five herbs in the selected medicinal plants. All the plants were dicotyledons. All were angiosperms. The selected plant species were described taxonomically, with parts of plants used and general medicinal property of each plant. Different medicinal flora were transferred for a live herbarium and a dry herbarium was also maintained. It is desired that the indigenous plant material should be collected, identified, processed and utilized for medicinal purposes.

  Bacterial strains of Pseudomonas (Ps1, Ps2, Ps3, Ps4, Ps5) Azotobacter (Ab1, Ab2, Ab4, Ab5, Ab6) and Azospirillum (As2, As4, As5, As6, As8) were used to inoculate the seeds of Helianthus annus var SF-187. Inoculated and non-inoculated seeds were germinated and grown under field conditions until at maturity. Two harvests were taken one after 7 days of germination and other at maturity i.e., after 4 months of sowing. All the bacterial inoculations provoked germination in Helianthus annus. Maximum increase was manifested by Ps5 (223.63%). In general strains of Pseudomonas promoted plant growth more then Azotobacter and Azospirillum, plant height was enhanced by Ab6 (68.66%) and number of leaves was increased by Ps1 (63.63%) after 7 days of germination. However Ps2 strain exhibited maximum enhancement in plant height (57.33%), while Ab1 manifested maximum enhancement in number of leaves (49.01%) after 4 months of sowing. In case of yield parameters As8 manifested maximum increase in number of flowers (128.57%), Ps5 increased diameter of flowers (134.05%), Ab1 weight of seeds (57.00%) and Ab4 (30.35%) manifested enhancement in oil content when compared with control. Biochemical parameters were also increased with bacterial inoculations soluble protein content was enhanced by Ps5 (321.55%), after 7 days of germination and Ab2 (345.45%) after four months of sowing, auxin contents content was enhanced by, Ps1 (1138%) and Ab5 (845.50%), peroxidase activity was enhanced by Ps5 (321.55%) and Ab2 (345.45%) and acid phosphatase activity was increased by Ps1 (97.13%) and As8 (313.33%), after 7 days of germination and after four months of sowing when compared with that of control. These results demonstrate that these strains can be used for enhancing biomass as well as yield parameters.

  Bacterial strains of Pseudomonas (Ps1, Ps2, Ps3, Ps4, Ps5) Azotobacter (Ab1, Ab2, Ab4, Ab5, Ab6) and Azospirillum (As2, As4, As5, As6, As8) were used to inoculate the seeds of Triticum aestivum Var Inqalab-91. Inoculated and non-inoculated seeds were germinated and grown under field conditions until at maturity. All the bacterial inoculations provoked germination and growth parameters in Triticum aestivum, however Azotobacter strains exhibited more pronounced effect after 7 days of germination such as plant height (55.19%), number of leaves (50.01%) and Pseudomonas strains after 4 months of sowing such as plant height (82.60%), spike length (212.73%) and number of spikes (26.66%), when compared with that of control. All strains increased soluble protein content both after 7 days of germination and at maturity; As6 (64.95%) exhibited maximum increase after 7 days and Ab2 (791.79%) after four months of sowing. Auxin contents were also increased with the inoculation of bacterial strains when compared with that of control however, Ps3 (162.96%) exhibited maximum increase after 7 days and As2 (263.33%) after four months of sowing (at maturity). All strains increased peroxidase activity in Triticum aestivum As6 (109.55%) manifested maximum increase after 7 days and Ps1 (1436.09%) after four months of sowing. Acid phosphates activity was also enhanced with all the bacterial strains however As2 (263.54%) showed maximum increase after 7 days, whereas after four months of sowing Ps4 (146.95%) manifested maximum increase in this parameter. These results demonstrate that these strains can be used as biofertilzer for enhancing biomass as well as yield parameters.
