Compost derived from biostabilisation of a mixture of organic biodegradable fraction of municipal solid waste (MSW) and sewage sludge was tested in pots. Increasing amounts of the mixture were added a low fertility soil supporting clover or sorghum growth. The aim of the experiments was to evaluate the effect of the organic amendant on the symbiotic microorganisms Rhizobium trifolii and Glomus mosseae in the inoculated plants. Nodulation efficiency, nitrogen-fixation functionality, VAM infectivity and plant productivity are discussed.

Abstract

Compost derived from biostabilisation of a mixture of organic biodegradable fraction of municipal solid waste (MSW) and sewage sludge was tested in pots. Increasing amounts of the mixture were added a low fertility soil supporting clover or sorghum growth. The aim of the experiments was to evaluate the effect of the organic amendant on the symbiotic microorganisms Rhizobium trifolii and Glomus mosseae in the inoculated plants. Nodulation efficiency, nitrogen-fixation functionality, VAM infectivity and plant productivity are discussed.
