Author(s): Heerendra Prasad, Paramjeet Sajwan, Meena Kumari and SPS Solanki
Abstract: In the development and implementation of sustainable agriculture techniques, bio-fertilization is of great importance in order to alleviate deterioration of natural and environmental pollution. There is an increasing need for the management of the traditional processes of nutrient management, to result in higher nutrient concentration in soil and also to reduce environmental pollution. A considerable number of bacterial species are able to exert a beneficial effect on plant growth. Bio-fertilizers combined with organic manure influences the plant growth by enhancing root biomass; total root surface facilitates higher absorption of nutrients and increase in yield by reducing consumption of natural sources of energy. The organic fertilizers have proved that their application has the potential to increase the biomass and productivity of a wide range of crops. Hence, the research findings pertaining to these aspects on horticultural crops have been reviewed.
