Methods for the introduction of bacteria into soil: A review

  title={Methods for the introduction of bacteria into soil: A review},
  author={Jan Dirk van Elsas and Cobi Heijnen},
  journal={Biology and Fertility of Soils},
Literature on the use of microbial inoculants to increase crop yields, to control soil-borne plant diseases, or to degrade pollutants has been reviewed. Established inoculant technology based on Rhizobium/peat inoculants has been summarized. Special emphasis has been placed on the use of carrier materials for the delivery of microbial inoculants. Some new developments, e.g., the use of synthetic carriers, have been highlighted. The fact that not only inoculant survival in carrier materials… CONTINUE READING
