The modulation in physiological and metabolic attributes associated with colonisation by cyanobacteria in wheat has been little explored. In the present investigation, the performance of six selected cyanobacterial strains was evaluated with wheat (variety HD2687). The fresh weight of plants, measured after 2 weeks, exhibited a 30–60 % increase, while 14–40 % increase in plant dry weight was also recorded, as compared to uninoculated control. The nitrogen-fixing potential (expressed as… Expand

A consortium of cyanobacteria and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria for wheat growth improvement in a hydroponic system
TLDR
The study results indicate that the consortium of the five isolates gave the best performance in terms of growth parameters and biofertilizers containing the consortia cyanobacteria and PGPR used in this study are recommended for improved growth of wheat plants. Expand
Influence of cyanobacterial inoculation on the culturable microbiome and growth of rice.
TLDR
It is illustrated that cyanobacterial inoculation can play significant roles in improving growth and metabolism of rice directly and interact with the beneficial members from the endophytic microbiome of rice seedlings synergistically. Expand
Association of N2-fixing cyanobacteria with wheat (Triticum vulgare L.) roots
Two locally prevailing hetyerocystous cyanobacterial isolates, collected from alluvial clay soil and identified as Nostoc muscorum and Anabaena variabilis, were tested (either singly or mixed) forExpand
Co-cultivation of cyanobacteria for raising nursery of chrysanthemum using a hydroponic system
TLDR
The present investigation aimed to utilize plant growth–promoting diazotrophic cyanobacteria as an option to raise the chrysanthemum varieties Pusa Aditya and Jaya in a nursery by co-culturing hydroponically, and found that co- Culturing treatments performed significantly better, as compared with BG11 medium alone.

Microbial inoculation elicited changes in phyllosphere microbial communities and host immunity suppress Magnaporthe oryzae in a susceptible rice cultivar
TLDR
The significance of the root-shoot linkages in the effective biocontrol of these promising, indigenous microbes, applied as soil drench or foliar agents, which can be useful in abating the incidence of the fungal pathogen in an environment –friendly manner are illustrated. Expand
Enhancement of plant growth and yields in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) through novel cyanobacterial and biofilmed inoculants.
TLDR
The cumulative effect of improved plant growth and nutrient uptake exhibited a positive correlation with microbiological activity, especially nitrogen fixation, soil chlorophyll and soil available nitrogen, which may account for the significantly higher yield parameters in the A. laxa treatment.
