Limitations of Biofertilizer application

 Use of biofertilizers makes certain constraints generally related to production, market, resource and field level which are as follows.

(1) Production constraints:
  • Unavailability of appropriate and efficient strains
  • Unavailability of suitable carrier
  • Lack of standards in packaging
(2) Market level constraints:
  • La

Application methods for Cyanobacteria and Azolla

 
Cyanobacteria 
  • Broadcast 10 kg soil based culture/ha.  5-7 days after transplanting of rice seedlings
  • Maintain sufficient water (5 –10 cm) for 15 days 
  • A thick algal mat is formed at 15 days
  • Drain off water and allow algal mat to settle 
Azolla 
  • Incorporate as green manure before tr

Application methods for Azospirillum & Phosphate solubilizer

(i) Seed treatment for direct seeded rice
  • Keep the seeds required for sowing one acre in a heap on a clean cemented floor or gunny bag.
  • Prepare culture suspension by mixing one packet {200g}  each of Azospirillum  and PSB biofertilizer in approx. 800 ml water {1:2}
  • Sprinkle the culture suspension on the heap of the seeds and mix by hand so that thin coating is uniformly applied to the seeds.
  • Spread the seeds under s

Use of biofertilizer in rice

 
  •  There is a need to balanced supply of nutrients to the crops in an integrated fashion without over reliance on only one source of nutrients for sustainable production.
  • In this direction, bio-fertilizer has emerged as a promising component in integrated nutrient supply system for sustaining the crop production. 
  • Cyanobacterial nitrogen fixation helps to minimize the over dependence of chemicals, in particular, urea in rice farming and also enhan

Mycorrhizae

 
  •  The symbiotic association between plant roots and fungal mycelia is termed as Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (VAM). 
  • VAM is a fungal biofertilizer mobilizes relatively immobile elements like Zn, Cu, K, S, Al, Mn, Mg, Fe, and speed up their uptake by plants. 
  • VAM inoculation improves the water relation to plants. 
  • Many of the graminaceous and leguminous plants harbour VAM (Gherbi et al., 2008). 
  • These plants cont
