Organic farming is a technique of producing crops, in which the use of synthetic and chemical inputs like fertilizers, pesticides, growth regulators and livestock feed additives is avoided. To reduce the harm caused by indiscriminate use of synthetic chemicals, organic materials such as farm manure, compost, vermicompost, biofertiliser, biopesticide and so on, can be used, at least as complement, if not as substitute. The present book incorporates articles on organic farming, biofertilisers, PGPR bioinoculant, role of mycorrhizae in agriculture, biopesticides, VAM biotechnology and economics of bio-inputs usage in agriculture.

  • Organic farming topics included are prospects and applications, composting technology, potentiality of bio-fertilizers, PGPR bio-inoculant as an input, and Azolla.
  • Topics on mycorrhiza topics include mass multiplication of G. fasciculatum, VAM biotechnology, current trends and future prospects, VAM review, mycorrhizal fungi in sustainable agriculture, AM fungi in some medicinal plants, mycorrhizal associations in Pteridophytes, and so on
  • Agricultural topics included are economics of bio-inputs usage, dry-land agricultural strategies, agricultural biodiversity, and use of bio-pesticides.
