The ability of siderophores production by endophytic isolates was qualitatively detected according to (1).
Results recorded that about 32 isolates were able to produce siderophores and gave positive results of growth also, 41 isolates were observed colorimetrically with yellow color as an indication of catecholate-tybe of siderophares positive result, whereas 14 isolates not able to produce siderophores.
