Evaluating alternative rhizobial carriers for improving soil performance
The presentation will focus on the assessment of locally available and low-cost organic, inorganic and biochar materials as promising alternative microbial carriers to peat for invention and commercialisation of novel rhizobium inoculants. More than 100 types of these materials have been analysed for the physico-chemical properties (e.g., surface properties and moisture retention moisture) and assessed for their suitability as rhizobial carriers.
Professor Chenrong Chen from Griffith University will present this webinar. Chen leads the Soil CRC project Evaluating alternative rhizobial carriers.
