The Role of Bio Fertilizer in Canola Growth, Yield and Stress Condition : A Review

Authors(4) :-Abdolreza Nokhbeh Zaeim, Mostafa Torkaman, Hasan Ghasemeeyan, Mojtaba Roohi

The oil extracted from canola (Brassica napusL.) has high industrial and economic value, since it is used as edible oil and feedstock for biodiesel production. It is also the third most produced oilseed in the world. Canola has the lowest saturated fat content among vegetable oils and thus presents an increasing demand for diet-conscious consumers. Oilseed rape has a relatively high requirement of nitrogen where the content of this nutrient in seeds and plant tissues is greater than in most grain crops. 6 Nitrogen different levels and biofertilizers effects were studied on growth and yield of canola Canola represents its highest yield in proper and desirable soil conditions. However its growth, yield and oil yield can be reduced significantly by environmental stresses such as drought, salinity and water logging. Therefore, canola yield may reduce under saline soils. The use of Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) for reducing chemical inputs in agriculture is a potentially important and interesting issue for increasing international concern in food and environmental quality. It is necessary for developing strategies of integrated fertilization for crops to maximize production of crops and reducing the risk of pollution from chemical fertilizers. Therefore, the objectives of this study to evaluate the impact of bio-organic, chemical nitrogen on seed quality of canola.
