Algae are very large and diverse group of simple, typically autotrophic organisms that can carried out photosynthesis and have ability to capture energy from sunlight. Algae play an important role in sustainable and organic agriculture where it is used as biofertilizer and soil stabilizers. Algae, particularly the seaweeds, are used as fertilizers, resulting in less nitrogen and phosphorous runoff than the other from the use of livestock manure. This in turn, increases the quality of water…

Soil inoculation with cyanobacteria: reviewing its’ potential for agriculture sustainability in drylands

In the last decades, there has been a huge expansion of intensive agriculture crops to attend the enormous demand of food needs with increasing population. Intensive agriculture is highly dependent

Sustainable initiative of using cyanobacteria as a liquid fertilizer for hydroponic cultivation: A waste to wealth utilization.

TLDR

The Use of Microalgae and Cyanobacteria in the Improvement of Agricultural Practices: A Review on Their Biofertilising, Biostimulating and Biopesticide Roles

TLDR
This manuscript highlights the potential of microalgae and cyanobacteria in the improvement of agricultural practices, presenting how these photosynthetic microorganisms interact with higher plants; the main bioactive compounds that can be isolated from microalgal and cyanOBacteria; and how they can influence plants’ growth at different levels.

Role of Microbial Technology in Agricultural Sustainability

Agriculture is one of the most ancient practiced and source of livelihood that persist till today. With continuous increase in population, conventional agriculture practices are incapable to feed the

Physiological role of cyanobacteria and glycinebetaine on wheat plant grown under salinity stress

Salinity is an important abiotic stress that reduces growth and productivity of different crops. In many agricultural soils cyanobacteria or blue green algae are the prominent inhabitants, where they

The effect of different species of cyanobacteria on the rice yield and nitrogen use efficiency under different levels of nitrogen fertilizer on Alluvial West Java

Cyanobacteria or blue-green algae play an important role in rice cultivation. Nitrogen-fixing bacteria Cyanobacteria are found in rice fields, some of which can fix N2 up to 30%, produce some

Impact of Cyanobacteria Inoculation on Rice (Orize sativa) Yield Cultivated in Saline Soil

TLDR
Applying cyanobacterial inoculation to rice plant enhanced the growth of rice plant resulting in significant increases in rice straw and grains yields compared to uninoculated treatments, and inoculation with cyanobacteria increased total proline content of rice plants compared to the other examined treatments.

TLDR
The potentials and constraints of conventional BNF systems in rice agriculture are reviewed, as well as the prospects of achieving in planta nitrogen fixation in rice.

AN EXAMPLE OF ALGAE AS PIONEERS IN THE LITHOSERE AND THEIR ROLE IN ROCK CORROSION

TLDR
The present investigation was undertaken to determine quantitatively the actual corrosion of rock brought about by an algal community, and the moistureabsorbing capacity of theAlgae community was determined because the pioneer communities of a xerosere can survive only if they have the power of absorbing water readily whenever it is available.

TLDR
Because many cyanobacteria and algae produce a large number of antibacterial and antifungal materials, are almost never a threat to the environment, and many can be grown in quantity in mass culture, they are suitable candidates for exploitation as biocontrol agents of plant pathogenic bacteria and fungi.

Effects of cyanobacterial extracellular products and gibberellic acid on salinity tolerance in Oryza sativa L

TLDR
It is proposed that Scytonema hofmanni extracellular products may counteract altered hormone homeostasis of rice seedlings under salt stress by producing gibberellin-like plant growth regulators.

Seasonal changes in periphyton nitrogen fixation in a protected tropical wetland

TLDR
Monitoring the nitrogen fixation rate using the acetylene reduction assay of cyanobacterial mats in a tropical, unfertilized, and protected wetland found spatial differences in nitrogenase activity among the four sites that could be attributed to variations in species composition within the periphyton.

PNITROGEN-FIXING ABILITIES OF SOME CYANOBACTERIA IN SANDY LOAM SOIL AND EXUDATE EFFICIENCY ON RICE GRAIN GERMINATION

TLDR
The results revealed that nitrogen-fixing abilities and rice grain germination appeared to be strain-specific, and the persistence of Nostoc muscorum and Calothrix brevissima in non-sterile soil for 90 days with a maximum activities indicate that both of them can be used as non-indigenous strains.
