Description

Microbial Biotechnology in Agro-Environmental Sustainability describes in detail various roles of microbial resources in management of crop diseases and how the microbes can be used for the source of income due to their cultivation for the purpose of biomass and bioenergy production. The development microbial inoculants as bio-fertilizers to enhance crop productivity and degraded land restoration is also included. The book provides the latest information in the field of role of microbial biotechnology and applications in agriculture as bio-fertilizers, bio-pesticides, generation alternative source of energy, restoration degraded and marginal lands, mitigation of global warming gases, etc.

Key Features

  • Describes microbial biotechnology and its applications in sustainable agriculture
  • Provides information on the use of a variety of microbes for crop production
  • Outlines microbe-based separation techniques for removal of metal contamintants from soil
  • Describes the role of microbial agents in generation of alternative source of energy
  • Includes microbial tools and technology in restoration of degraded and marginal lands, mitigation of global warming gases and bioremediation of polluted sites
