Biofertilizers for Sustainable Agriculture and Environment , 1st ed. 2019 Soil Biology Series, Vol. 55
Coordonnateurs : Giri Bhoopander, Prasad Ram, Wu Qiang-Sheng, Varma Ajit
This book gives a profound overview on the benefits of biofertilizers as alternative to chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Agricultural production has increased massively over the last century due to increased use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, but this gain comes at a price. The chemicals are not only expensive; they also reduce microbial activities in the agricultural soils and accumulate in the food chain with potential harmful effects to humans. Thus, it is high time to watch out for alternatives and to find solutions to overcome the increasing dependence on such chemicals.
Biofertilizers, consisting of plant remains, organic matter and microorganisms, might offer such an alternative. They are natural, organic, biodegradable, eco-friendly and cost-effective. The microbes present in the biofertilizers are important, because they produce nutrients required for plant growth (e.g., nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium), as well as substances essential for plant growth and development (e.g., auxins, cytokinins). Biofertilizers improve physical properties, fertility and productivity of soil. As a result, the amount of chemical fertilizers can be reduced while keeping the crop yield at a high level. This makes biofertilizers a powerful tool for a sustainable agriculture and environment.
The book covers the latest research on biofertilizers, spanning from beneficial fungal, bacterial and algal inoculants, over microbes for bioremediation, wastewater treatment and recycling of biodegradable municipal, agricultural and industrial waste, to biocontrol agents and bio-pesticides.
The book is a valuable resource for researchers, academician and students in the broad field of microbiology and agriculture.
