Microbial Seed Coatings examines the latest research and case studies in microbial seed coatings, including inoculant carriers and binders, methods to improve the shelf life of microbial coated seeds, and procedures for applying PGPM to seed coating. To meet the needs of the development of sustainable plant breeding and agriculture, seed coating has been widely used as an effective means to alleviate biotic and abiotic stresses, thus enhancing crop growth, yield and health. As plant growth-promoting microorganisms (PGPM) are recognized as essential contributors to improving agricultural productivity, this title is an essential read for both researchers and students.
However, during conventional inoculation processes, several factors such as insufficient microbial survival, hindrance in the application of biocontrol inocula to the seeds and exposure to unsuitable temperature and light in subsequent seed storage, force us to explore efficient and reliable microbial application tools.
