    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.87, pp. 25-31, 2018, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2018.87.025

    Abstract Abiotic stresses like salt stress and soil compaction are responsible for increased ethylene production which may adversely affect crop growth. A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the response of seed inoculation with ACC-deaminase containing rhizobacteria (Pseudomonas fluorescens and Pseudomonas syringae) in the presence of recommended or half of a recommended rate of inorganic fertilizers at different growth stages of fodder maize in a compacted saline-sodic soil. At both fertilizer rates, seed inoculation with P. fluorescens and P. syringae significantly improved all growth parameters over the control treatment. After 30, 60 and 75 days of sowing, treatment with recommended NPK… More >

    Soil Microbial Dynamics Modeling in Fluctuating Ecological Situations by Using Subtractive Clustering and Fuzzy Rule-Based Inference Systems

    Sunil Kr. Jha1, Zulfiqar Ahmad2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.113, No.4, pp. 443-459, 2017, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2017.113.443

    Abstract Microbial population and enzyme activities are the significant indicators of soil strength. Soil microbial dynamics characterize microbial population and enzyme activities. The present study explores the development of efficient predictive modeling systems for the estimation of specific soil microbial dynamics, like rock phosphate solubilization, bacterial population, and ACC-deaminase activity. More specifically, optimized subtractive clustering (SC) and Wang and Mendel's (WM) fuzzy inference systems (FIS) have been implemented with the objective to achieve the best estimation accuracy of microbial dynamics. Experimental measurements were performed using controlled pot experiment using minimal salt media with rock phosphate as sole carbon source inoculated with… More >
