Influence of cyanobacteria on improving alkaline soil fertility, growth and
yield of paddy

  • 1, ,

The highly saline adaptable species of cyanobacteria viz., Phormidium fragile and Oscillatoria curviceps showed high potential
for reclamation of alkaline soil with P. fragile being more effective. pH, electrical conductivity and exchangeable sodium
percentage were reduced significantly due to the treatment of these cyanobacteria.

Keywords: cyanobacteria, Oscillatoria curviceps, Phormidium fragile, rice yield, soil fertility, soil reclamation
