S Sarguna Sundaram and S Prasanna Sundaram
Biofertilizers are the substance that contains microorganism’s living or latent cells. Biofertilizers increase the nutrients of host plants when applied to their seeds, plant surface or soil by colonizing the rhizosphere of the plant. Biofertilizers are more cost-effective as compared to chemical fertilizers.
The application of bio fertilizers to the crops is being propagated throughout the world. The popular and cheap bio fertilizers are vermi compost and Blue green alga. Blue green algae were applied to mainly to paddy fields. Recently they are applied to other crops also. Experiments were conducted to investigate soluble protein of Solanum melangena L. by using vermi compost and BGA in single and double combinations. It was found that Vermi compost in single fertilizer treatment; Vermi compost and BGA in double fertilizer treatment were found to have comparatively high values in soluble protein. The cultivated crops showed maximum value in double fertilizer treatment. Thus the combination of these fertilizers enhances the growth and yield.
