Azolla advances as aid to rice production


Far Eastern Agriculture (July/August): 12-15
Azolla advances as aid to rice production
The role of Azolla, an aquatic fern which forms a symbiosis with the N-fixing cyanobacteria Anabaena azollae, in rice production in Asia is discussed. Local conditions and rice dictate cultural practices, but 4 basic techniques are used: monocropping of Azolla and ploughing/trampling into the soil prior to rice transplanting; intercropping with rice; a combination of mono- and intercropping; and production outside of rice lands and incorporation in fresh or composted form.
