A Report on Silicate-Solubilizing Bacteria

Silicon a biologically important element, required in living organisms in a very less amount. To the plants it provides natural defense against many fungal diseases, hence silicon availability to the plants is very much important. Silicon is second most abundant element found on the earth, Read more…

Use of PSB Inoculants to increase the Absorption of Phosphorus from Soils

Phosphorus has been always a hindrance to the plant growth instead of its abundance in soils in both organic and inorganic form. The major reason for its being a limiting factor for plant growth is its less mobility in soil. However such unavailability is Read more…
