Abstract

The straw decomposing ability of microorganisms which were previously screened under laboratory conditions was evaluated under field conditions. Out of sixteen microorganisms tested Aspergillus sp., Cytophaga rubra, mixed inoculation with all cultures, Cellulomol1as uda, Bacillus macerans and St'rratia kiliensis decomposed wheat straw within sixty days after inoculation. A gradual decline in total nitrogen and organic carbon contents was observed during decomposition period of 120 days. The inoculat ion of straw with different microorganisms had no significant effect on total phosphorus and potash content of compost, whereas humic acid
