The Role of Biofertilizer in Soils Health and their Influence on Plant growth-A Review

M. L Bubarai, S. Rao

Abstract :

 Biofertilizer technology involves the use of microorganism which is inoculated in soils to improve availability of

nutrients either making it soluble as in Phosphate solubiling bacteria or by nitrogen 􀃶xation like Azotobacter. Base
on the literature review it has been stated that the application of biofertilizers together with inorganic fertilizer or green manure enhanced
the proper utilization of inorganic or mineral fertilizer by the plant as a result of the dynamic action of microbial actions. They are capable of
improving the water holding capacity of soils, EC and an increase in NPK and the organic carbon content of the soils in addition to modifying
the soil reaction. The microbes present in biofertilizers are capable of making the nutrients in soil readily available for plant to use. The use of
biofertilizers with NPK fertilizer enhanced the growth and yield of crops.
