Effect of pesticides, i.e., Benzene Hexachloride, Lindane, Diazinon and Endrin that are often used in India was observed on nitrogen-fixing blue-green algae Cylindrospermum sp., Aulosira fertilissima Ghose and aerobically non-nitrogen-fixing blue-green alga Plectonema boryanum strain 594. These algae were sensitive for BHC in comparison to other pesticides. A. fertilissima and P. boryanum were more resistant than Cylindrospermum sp.
