Two annual species of Sesbania, S. aculeata and Sesbania sp. PL Se-17, were field evaluated as green manure for wetland rice in an alkaline soil. The two species were raised as a catch crop during summer in a wheat-rice rotation, and added as 24.7 and 20.8 t ha−1 of green matter, 116 and 98 kg N ha−1, respectively, after 45 days of growth. For the optimum(More)
In order to improve nitrogen recovery by rice, the effect of a urease inhibitor phenylphosphorodiamidate (PPD) on the efficiency of fertilizer urea was studied in laboratory and greenhouse. Addition of PPD to urea (5% w/w) delayed urea hydrolysis by 3 to 4 days and reduced ammonia volatilization from 45% (without PPD) to 8.5% (with PPD). Ammonia(More)
A study was conducted on the structure of extracellular, water-soluble polysaccharides from 5 different strains ofRhizobium viz. R. trifolii J60 andR. meliloti strains J7017, 202, 204 and 207. All these polysaccharides were found to contain glucose and galactose in the approximate molar ratio of 7:1. Methylation analysis revealed these polysaccharides to(More)
This study reports structural information on extracellular, water-soluble polysaccharides from 5 different strains of Rhizobium, viz. R. trifolii J60, R. meliloti J1017, 202, 204 and 207. All the 5 polysaccharides had glucose and galactose in approximate molar ratio of 7:1. Methylation analysis revealed that the polysaccharides contained (1 leads to 3), (1(More)
Occurrence of Azospirillum was investigated in coconut-based farming systems, such as high-density multispecies cropping (15 crops), multi-storeyed cropping (3 crops), mixed cropping with tea and coffee (2 crops), intercropping with tropical tubers (5 crops), mixed farming with grasses (3 crops) and in 3 crops, arecanut,Mimosa invisa and sugarcane from(More)
