Agricultural Microbiology Biofertilizer Projects


Research on Agriculturally Beneficial Microorganisms was started at GAU, now AAU on Biofertilizer in 1979 with special emphasis on Azolla, which was later on strengthened with inception of NARP in 1983.Major thrust to identify and isolate efficient native microbial cultures, which augment atmospheric Nitrogen, solubilize phosphorous, potash and other nutrients for different agro-climatic conditions of Gujarat State. Achievements on research carried out by faculty members through different research projects and postgraduate students on Agriculturally Beneficial Microorganisms are compiled.Team microbiology have explored use of agriculturally beneficial microorganisms for different environmental issues concerned with agricultural ecosystem like mitigation of green house gas (GHG) emission from crops, agro waste bio-decomposition, bioremediation of heavy metals, plastic and pesticides. Moreover, mapping and enumeration of agriculturally beneficial microorganisms in nine districts of middle Gujarat and atlas preparation.Molecular characterization of key PGPRs and listing on NCBI, USA.

Vision and Goal

We aim to develop eco-friendly microbial remedies for crop production and protection for welfare of farming community and protecting environment in long run for future generations, also with evolving new biotech and organic microbiological strategies. As well as to enrich students with Agril microbiology knowledge at UG and PG level to enhance their skill and generate competent manpower.
