The effects of four treatments upon the N content of rice crop and soil in 1m 2 irrigated microplots were compared: (1) PK fertilization + Sesbania rostrata (inoculated stems) ploughed in as green manure when it was 52 days old. In a field trial, comprising different green manure crops, it was found out that Sesbania rostrata produced the highest biomass per hectare (20–25 tons/ha) and accumulated a maximum of 150–220 kg N/ha. Function i. Modulates the action of auxin, and may function as plant growth regulator that alters phytohormone responses. A cost-effective and practical seed inoculation method would be the slurry method. (3) PK fertilization + ammonium sulphate (60kg N ha −1). Status. [44], In many soils, especially where new tree species are being incorporated the appropriate Rhizobium strain is not present.
