Microbes and Sustainable Agriculture covers recent spate of research, highlighting the major role of microbes in agriculture sustainability. It explains the role of bacteria, cyanobacteria and fungi in diverse facets of agriculture to preserve the sustainability including arbuscular mycorrhizal association, microbial biopesticides, heavy metal resistant bacterial strains, herbicides for weed management, biochar and its role in soil fertility management and plant disease management. This book is designed for undergraduate, postgraduate and research students working or interested in agricultural microbiology; and to serve as a reference for scientists, professionals and engineers in this field.
