The inoculation provides an increase in forage yield of pastures without nitrogen fertilization, and reinoculation in the second crop year is not necessary.
This effect was detected despite the fact that food supply was generally lower in the dark treatment even after periodic reinoculation effort (Fig.
The restoration strategies included the emptying of the lake and treatment of the sediments in order to avoid reinoculation by M.
Three different treatments of the soils were performed: (1) steam sterilisation in autoclave (120[degrees]C for 1 h), in order to eliminate the native microflora; (2) reinoculation of autoclaved samples by adding 1 g of non-treated soil; (3) carbon supply--a mixture of cellulose (0.66%), pectin (0.66%), and starch (0.66%) added to soil as powder.
In the reinoculation stage, three check plants that were the same age as the test plants to be reinoculated and three 2-wk-old checks were inoculated periodically during the reinoculation to assure that the inoculum was virulent.
"Although some organic oils and other natural products have antimicrobial activity, their biocidal capabilities are limited and they usually cannot withstand the continuous reinoculation that most personal care products must endure.
The consumption of diatoms corresponds to the plate rotation rather than to reinoculation. When comparing the two rotational profiles (1 = start at top - bottom - top and 2 = start at bottom - top - bottom) of diatom consumption they were shown to be statistically different ([t.sub.(df 41)] = -2.986 [P = 0.005]).
For some strains, reinoculation procedure was also performed onto 5x [10.sup.5] A.
A reinoculation assay was also performed by back inoculating sap from leaf samples to an indicator species, cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.].
After 16 days (when postlarvae were 18-days old), reinoculation densities were increased to 500, 1,000, 2,000, 4,000, 8,000, and 10,000 cells/[mm.sup.2].
Both Acetobacter and surface film yeasts (mainly Candida and Pichia) enjoy conditions that prevail in a stuck wine during reinoculation: warm, low SO2, not topped.
