Green manuring for rice with rhizobium inoculated Sesbania grandiflora

Madras Agricultural Journal 83(4): 249-250
Green manuring for rice with rhizobium inoculated Sesbania grandiflora
In a pot experiment with rice the effects were studied of S. grandiflora green manure with or without inoculation with 5 Rhizobium strains, application of 100 or 50% of the recommended NPK rate or green manure + P + K. Green manure dry weight (DW), number of nodules/plant and total plant N content were increased by inoculation. Rice plant DW and grain DW were not significantly affected by treatments although grain DW was highest with green manure inoculated with strain SG-5 + P + K.
