DescriptionWe use certain microbial inoculants in the nursery as a part of supporting the objectives of accelerating rehabilitation of degraded land and ecosystem function, as well as reducing costs in establishment and maintenance of forest plantings. Microbial inoculants re-create natural partnerships between plants and some of the beneficial microorganisms that support plants. Using microbial inoculants is a way to reintroduce some naturally occurring microorganisms that support the productivity of plants in nature. In our nursery, we work with both rhizobia and mycorrhizal inoculants.
