The effects of inoculant carrier, temperature, and storage period on the survival of Rhizobium strains were determined by plate count and most-probable-number analyses. Preliminary experiments showed that survival of rhizobia was affected by each of these factors and their interactions. Results of further studies indicated that six strains of rhizobia survived better at high temperatures when lyophilized and suspended in an oil carrier as compared to finely ground peat. The oil base inocula… CONTINUE READING
