Potential Microorganisms for Sustainable Agriculture by D K Maheshwari And R C Dubey
Book Summary:

The number of potential microbes exploited commercially is scanty irrespective of their high number present in the diverse habitats. In recent years, they have shown successfulness in multifarious areas such as production of industrially viable products, organic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, recovery of metals, improvement and maintenance of environmental quality, and insect and pest control. The Twenty-three articles included here fall under three broad categories, namely, agricultural microbiology, industrial microbiology and bioremediation. The psychrophiles hold many biological secrets such as biochemical limits to macromolecular stability and the blueprints for constructing the stable macromolecules. Lactic acid bacteria are known for their role in the preparation of fermented dairy products

Audience of the Book :
This volume will certainly help the PG and research students of agricultural microbiology and biotechnology.
Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1.A compilation of 23 articles, the book presents a multi-perspective view on evaluation, production, techno-modifiication and use of a variety of microorganisms in sustainable agricultural practices.

2.Biological control, use of biofertilizers, plant growth, the management of parasites, symbiotic relationships, and biology of some useful microorganisms are the focus of the book.

3.Contributed by 75 eminent scientists and academicians.
