Pleurotus florida and nitrogen fixing organism (Azotobacter vinelandii) for the biodegradation of coir pith
S Selva Kumar and S Shankar
This study reports the biodegradation of coir pith by using Pleurotus florida
along with nitrogen fixing organism and also reports the findings on the growth trials carried out using biodegraded coir pith on some plant. It is concluded that the coir pith can be converted to effective organic manure with biodegradation with Pleurotus florida
and Nitrogen fixing bacteria Azotobacter vinelandii
. The combined action of these organisms with the white rot fungi, there was a marked reduction in the lignocelluloses content and particle size, enhancement of NPK content and the resultant product can be used as effective manure for plants.
