... Narayana et al. (2011) found that applying Jeevamrutha @ 10 litres per plant, along with Azospirillum and T. viride (10g each), to nematode-infested cardamom plantations improved plant growth and yield. According to Ajay et al. (2015), 1 per cent cashew shell was successful in restraining P. meadii (70.8 per cent) in soil without affecting T. harzianum growth. To control clump rot disease in cardamom, T. harzianum (108 cfu/g) was grown in a 50g/clump mixture of decomposed coffee compost and cow dung during May-June and August-September . ...
... However, the coupled biochar-nZVI composite has a broader application and a reduced aggregation rate. Thus, biochar modification using nano ZVI, zeolite, and/or silica was able to alter the functional chemical groups of biochar, resulting in increased covalent bond formation, hydrogen bond formation, and π-π acceptor-donor interactions, and eventually increased the sorption (Gudade et al. 2016;Rajput et al. 2018). As a sustainable green process, nano ZVI-DBC may be used to remove chlortetracycline from aquatic ecosystems (Das et al. 2020a, b, c, d, e). ...
