Abstract

Inoculation of wheat straw, contained in glass columns and moistened by continuous recirculation of a solution containing mineral salts, with a cellulolytic fungus, , and a N-fixing anaerobe, , increased the decomposition rate constant from 0·0096 d to 0·0139 d compared with non-inoculated straw. N fixation during the utilization of the straw resulted in again of 11.5 mg N (g straw lost) over a period of 8 weeks at 25°C.
