Cyanobacteria: A Source Of Bio Fertilizers For Sustainable Agriculture


  • Dr. Ashutosh Awasthi, Mr. Devendra Pal Singh


Constant increase in the global human population and the degradation of the natural energy resources causing harm to environmental needs, sustainable food supply and the energy supply. The most environmentally friendly 'carbon technology' strategy has been used for the preparation of biofertilizers. The indiscriminate rise in the human population and the growth has put an extra burden on the resources of soil and water. Compared to other species, micro-algae and cyanobacteria are environmentally friendly, greater cell size and effective production of biomass, making them the easiest and most sustainable alternative to the problems of soil fertility and the water supplies available. Over the course of the evolution cyanobacteria are by far the most productive and maintained prokaryotic organism. They are regarded one of the earliest forms of life found on this planet. Cyanobacteria are evolving prospects for converting radiant energy effectively into chemical energy. As a by-product this biological system generates oxygen. Regularly, cyanobacterial biomass could be utilized for gigantic scope food, power, auxiliary metabolites, bio fertilizers, beauty care products, and meds handling. Accordingly, cyanobacteria are regularly utilized for preparing biomass of very high worth and bringing down the measure of CO2 in harmless to the ecosystem supportable horticultural practice. This paper talks about the large scale manufacturing strategies for the cyanobacteria bio fertilizers and their use in the farming and in industry
