Abstract

Improving calliandra growth.

Abstract

A brief account of greenhouse studies with 8 accessions of Calliandra calothyrsus from RĂ©union and Kenya inoculated with various strains of Rhizobium. Marked improvements in plant growth (shoot dry weight) and shoot total nitrogen were observed with the more effective rhizobial strains, but field confirmation of the results is required - tests are in preparation in New Caledonia.
