Abstract:
Bacterial formulations have been widely used to improve recycle of nutrients and waste in several sectors including agriculture. This study is conducted to compare the effects of two commercial waste degraders (ACF-32, ACF-SA) on barley productivity in comparison with standard farm practice. This trial was carried out in a randomised design with three replicates. Treatments were control (standard farm practice), ACF-32 treated plants and ACF-SA treated plants. The results showed a significant difference between the treatment with ACF-SA or ACF-32 and standard farm practice where the treatment of barley with ACF-SA performed better than the control and ACF-32. Particularly, protein, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and zinc content were higher reflecting an increased yield of 1.94 t/ha for barley treated with ACF-SA than those under standard farm practice
