Growth and survival of two rhizobial strains, Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii, and Mesorhizobium ciceri, were used to evaluate residues from the cork industry as potential carriers for production of rhizobial inoculants. A peat-based carrier was used as a control. 41 days after inoculation, the number of viable bacteria was high, about 109 bacteria g-1 for all carriers. Rhizobial survival during storage (450 days) remained stable, between 108 and 109. The cork residues based carriers… CONTINUE READING
