May 2019 Researchers at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IIITA), Ibadan, have advised legume farmers, especially soya beans, to use inoculants
to boost nitrogen fixation by the crop and save money spent on nitrogen containing fertilisers.
Effect of applying inoculants
with heterolactic or homolactic and heterolactic bacteria on the fermentation and quality of corn silage.
In this manner, the application of the inoculant
along with the molybdenum increases the nitrate reductase activity, and improves the agronomic traits and the physiological quality of the produced seeds.
CAUSES HETING UPSeth Oluoch, an animal nutritionist at Caroga Pharma, notes that challenges associated with using molasses have forced farmers to turn to silage inoculants
.Another employee in the farm feeds the dairy cattle that they keep.
The microbial inoculants
and poultry manure effectively suppressed bacterial wilt compared to the controls with the unfertilized control being the most infected with the disease (Table 2).
Keywords: Alfalfa bale silage; identification; in vitro organic matter digestibility; lactic acid bacterial inoculants
: PFJ (pre fermented juice).
Single, dual and consortium of Azotobacter chroococcum, Bacillus megaterium, and Glomus fasciculatum with different level of NPK fertilizers were tested in a glass house experiment to find out the effects of different microbial inoculants
on growth parameters in Capsicum.
In order to increase population of lactic acid bacteria, microbial inoculant
was added before ensiling to enhance the process of fermentation (Bayatkouhsar et al., 2012).

and Technologies Employed in This Study.
Although literature summaries are encouraging, caution should be used when interpreting such data because all inoculants
are not equal and the conditions (e.g., rate of application, inoculant
viability, bacteria strain used as additives, crop, environmental temperature, wilting period, and moisture levels) varied markedly among the studies.
Considering the above, this study was conceived with the objective of evaluating the influence of doses and forms of application of inoculant
containing Azospirillum brasilense in upland rice under sprinkler irrigation.
