Advanced Microbial Techniques in Agriculture, Environment and Health Management provides current perspectives in the field of agriculture, environment, and health. This important reference presents the recent advancements in applied microbial technology and compiles it in a comprehensive manner, transferring applied microbial technology from laboratory conditions to the field level.  In 20 chapters Advanced Microbial Techniques in Agriculture, Environment and Health Management highly focuses on exploring the microbial intervention for an all-inclusive and cost-effective environmental management while thoroughly linking the cumulative microbial services involved in the up-gradation of agriculture, environment and health. It further offers detailed information on emerging environmental issues and proposes ways of controlling their consequences using different approaches to treatment and could be a milestone for environmental scientists and microbiologists around the world.

Key Features

  • Provides conceptual information and recent advances in microbial services involved in enhancing environmental sustainability.
  • Offers potential solutions for a variety of problems like low agricultural productivity, emission of harmful contaminants from both natural and anthropogenic sources and disease development in plants and humans.
  • Contains applied in-depth knowledge about microbial contributions as bio-inoculants, enzymatic sources and antimicrobials respectively


The audience for the proposed book will be Scientists in academia, research laboratories, and industry. The book will be highly recommended for microbiologists, medical microbiologists, environmental microbiologists, bioremediation experts and various other related areas.
