This publication is a product of the 8th International Symposium on Nitrogen Fixation with Non-Legumes, held at the University of Sydney in December 2000. The theme of Biofertilisers in Action was adopted for the Symposium and this book comprises a set of invited papers selected as most relevant to this theme.
This is a forward-looking book related to the future application of the plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) to help provide a more sustainable organically-based agriculture. This book is a genuine attempt to set the stage for this development. If justified by subsequent field trials and economic and environmental advantages, the area has a major potential to influence agriculture.
