The suitability of charcoal and filter mud as carriers for the survival of Rhizobium isolates at low and high temperatures was investigated. Both carriers were found to be suitable and maintained high rhizobia populations (1.0 × 108 rhizobia g−1). In Sudan, inoculants can safely be stored for 6–10 weeks in the ambient temperature (up to 37°C).
