Improve abiotic stress resistance (against drought, salinity, and/or temperature extremes)
Be effective in actual field conditions
Be effective in a range of soils
Be viable economically
Solver has relevant field data
Include, but are not limited to:
Silicates for water soluble fertilizer blends in regular pH conditions
Approaches not of Interest
Known Phosphate Solubilizing Micro-organisms (PSM)
Known Nitrogen Fixing bacteria (NF)
Micro-organisms proven effective in labs only
