These farmers face formidable challenges in increasing production, preserving natural resources and addressing the impact of climate change in food production systems.

    This manual is designed to give detailed, practical advice on the various methodologies of organic recycling. Blue-green algae form a self-sufficient system which is capable of fixing atmospheric nitrogen in organic forms and which grows upon a free water surface. It is thus ideally suited for propagation in rice fields. The development and use of blue-green algae require special techniques. The manual summarizes the present status of algal biofertilizer technology for rice with practical information for its adoption by agricultural extension personnel and subject matter specialists.
