Abstract: Although Rhizobium inoculants were initially hailed as a bio-innovation owing to their successful adoption for soybean production, strategies for capacity building are necessary to strengthen weakened or absent organizations and institutions to combat sharp declines in productivity. Rhizobium inoculants are potentially beneficial to poor smallholder farming systems in Madhya Pradesh, but without adequate policy support to create a suitable environment for active participation of private entrepreneurs at the local level, its wider production and application are very limited. An innovation system framework is used to analyze the actors (institutions and organizations) relevant to the successful implementation of bio-innovation processes.
