Summary

Microorganisms were integrated as bio-fertilizers in a wheat-rice trial in India. Four-year results show that Rice grain yield was 30% higher, compared to control plots, after application of an inoculum containing mycorrhiza and rhizo-bacteria. Substantial increase of grain Quality was achieved.
