Effects Of Selected Carrier Materials And Storage Temperatures On Survival, Viability And Efficacy Of Rhizobia Biofertilizers

ABSTRACTBiofertilizers offer commercially feasible and environmentally sound means for supplementing nutrient supply to crops. The basic problem in acquiring quality rhizobia biofertilizers is the low number of efficient cells. The major limitations affecting the quality of rhizobia biofertilizers are; short storage duration, unavailability of appropriate carrier materials, and susceptibility to high temperature. The present study evaluated the effects of selected carrier materials and storag...
