Rejuvenation of Biofertilizer for Sustainable Agriculture and Economic Development

  title={Rejuvenation of Biofertilizer for Sustainable Agriculture and Economic Development},
  author={Pallabi Mishra and Debiprasad Dash},
The economy of India thrives on agriculture, the most practiced occupation in the country. Agricultural fertilizers are essential to enhance proper growth and crop yield. Recently, farmers have been using chemical fertilizers for quicker and better yield. But these fertilizers endanger ecosystems, soil, plants, and human and animal lives. In contrast, naturally grown biofertilizers not only give a better yield, but are also harmless to humans. This paper aims to study the rejuvenation of…

Potential approach of biofertilizers towards sustainable agriculture: A Review

India's economy thrives on farming, which is the country's most popular occupation. Agricultural fertilisers are essential for proper crop growth and yield. Chemical fertilisers have recently been

Biofertilizers: a potential approach for sustainable agriculture development

The present review elucidates various mechanisms that have been exerted by biofertilizers in order to promote plant growth and also provides protection against different plant pathogens as well as discusses the important roles and applications of biof fertilizer in different sectors including agriculture, bioremediation, and ecology.

Current Aspects and Applications of Biofertilizers for Sustainable Agriculture

There has been a sharp increase in the world’s population over the past few decades which can be threatening in terms of the food security of the people. Thus, to cater to the huge demand of food,

Role of bio-fertilizers towards sustainable agricultural development: A review

The worldwide increase in human population every year raises a major threat to the food security of the people as the land for agriculture is restricted and even drastic reduction with time.

Microbes as Biofertilizers, a Potential Approach for Sustainable Crop Production

Continuous decline of earth’s natural resources and increased use of hazardous chemical fertilizers pose a great concern for the future of agriculture. Biofertilizers are a promising alternative to

Biofertilizers Toward Sustainable Agricultural Development

Modern intensive farming technologies enhance crop production but over time are associated with more problems, causing environment pollution that is hazardous to human health, and, ultimately poor

Legume Biofortification and the Role of Plant Growth-Promoting Bacteria in a Sustainable Agricultural Era

This review will focus on the importance of legumes in the accomplishment of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for production systems, understanding the role of PGPB in plant nutrition, and iron biofortification of legume with P GPB, which is an interesting case study of a green technology for sustainable plant-food production improving nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture.


Oil palm cultivation occupies a large planting area in Malaysia and is one of the most profitable commercial crops contributing to unprecedented socio-economic development in the country. The crop,

Biofertilizer, a way towards organic agriculture: A review

In recent years, biofertilizers have emerged as an important component for biological nitrogen fixation, offering an economically attractive and ecologically sound route for providing nutrient to the plant.



The Combined Use of Chemical, Organic Fertilizers and/or Biofertilizer for Crop Growth and Soil Fertility

Plant nutrients are essential for production of crop and healthy food for the word's expanding population. Plant nutrients are therefore a vital component of sustainable agriculture. Increased crop


This work review the applications and future challenges of the use of Azolla as biofertiliser in Africa, which contains an endosymbiotic community living in the dorsal lobe cavity of the leaves and the taxonomy of Azollae is reviewed.

Comparative efficiency of Azolla, blue-green algae and other organic manures in relation to N and P availability in a flooded rice soil

The cumulative release of available P was found superior in fresh Azolla incorporation and reached the highest values of 26 and 18 ppm in the fresh organic matter and compost amended soil respectively after 40–50 days of flooding.

The utilization of the Azolla - Anabaena complex as a nitrogen fertilizer for rice

Because it contains nitrogen fixing blue-green algae Anabaefa azota in its fronds, AzoZla grows on a nitrogen-free solution, doubles its mass in 3 or 5 days, and accumulates 30 or 40 kg of N/ha in 2

The response ofAzolla pinnata R. Brown to the split application of phosphorus and the transfer of assimilated phosphorus to flooded rice plants

Basal application of P at both 5 and 10 kg ha−1 significantly increased total biomass production and nitrogen fixation by Azolla pinnata R. Brown and flooded rice plants received P from incorporated Azolla with about 28% of the P present in the supplied Azolla being incorporated into the rice plants.

Soil Fertility and Fertilizers

The only reliable method of determining the fertilizer needs of a lawn is through a soil test to reveal the soil's native fertility, which will pinpoint potential problems you could not be aware of.
