Dinitrogen fixing moderately halo-alkaliphilic microorganisms as a crop productivity enhancer

Electrical conductivity of Sea water and saline soil is above 4 dS/m (Cox et al., 1970; Sehgal, 1980). The high pH and high salinity reduced metabolic rates of dinitrogen (N2) fixing bacteria which lowered or stopped N2 fixation activity. This indicates that native beneficial microorganisms inha...
