Biofertilizers :  Potentials and prospects


Intensive agriculture depends on the use of fossil fuel-based inputs like chemical fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides etc. While the application of these inputs contributed towards increased production, there is a growing awareness and concern over their adverse effect on soil productivity and environmental quality. The concept of sustainable agriculture envisages a system approach and places primary emphasis on maximising not only yields, but also agrosystem stability. A major constraint in realising the genetic potential of crops for higher yields fully is the supply of adequate nutrients, among which nitrogen plays an important role. The high cost of chemical fertilisers, the widening gap between supply and demand, the low purchasing power of small and marginal farmers and their adverse effect on environment has led the scientists to look for alternate strategies. One such approach is the use of soil micro-organisms which can either fix atmospheric nitrogen or solubilise phosphorus or stimulate the plant growth through synthesis of growth promoting substances as microbial fertilizers or biofertilizers or bioinoculants to relieve strain on the part of chemical fertilizers. The present review embodies certain aspects of biofertilizers and their role in agriculture.
