Cyanobacteria are present abundantly in rice fields and are important in helping to maintain rice field fertility through nitrogen fixation. Application of agricultural pesticides for improving crop productivity has become necessary in the present day agricultural practices. This has resulted in either stimulatory or inhibitory effects on the soil microflora including nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria. The response of three nitrogen fixing cyanobacterial species to two pesticides (Endosulfan, an… Expand
