Abstract

1 Introduction</h5> Large amounts of chemical fertilizer and pesticide applied in agriculture have played important roles in meeting the needs of the sustainable growth of population in China over the past several decades ( Fang and Meng, 2013 ), but have also caused a series of negative effects and potential threats on food safety and the agricultural ecological environment ( Verger and Boobis, 2013 ). It is desired to develop an environmentally friendly alternative to partially replace the chemicals which unfortunately constitute the most common approach in present-day agriculture. Bioorganic fertilizer (BOF) is one of these substitutes that possess attraction for sustainable agriculture, due to its dual roles of microbial fertilizer and organic fertilizer ( Agriculture Ministry, 2004 ). It is recombined with particular functional microbial strains and organic fertilizer, i.e. the compost of the residues of animals and plants, such as livestock and poultry dung and crop stalks, etc.</P>The commercial products of BOF in China first appeared in the 1990s. Shen’s group has performed some pioneering researches in this area, and has developed a series of products with efficacies of protecting cucumber, watermelon and banana from fusarium wilt ( Huang et al., 2011; Ling et al., 2013;
