PHYLOGENETICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF CYANOBACTERIA FROM PADDY FIELD OF CHHATTISGARH (PART I)Abstract
With respect to Chhattisgarh, rice is the principal crop of the state. India Covers 66% of cultivable land and mostly grown under kharif cropping season. To increase sustained productivity without decreasing soil quality, algal bio fertilizers are used widely now days in the state. Use of local isolates as algal inoculants is being stressed due to their competitiveness in the field for establishment of better ecological adaptability for developing composite starter. Culture of algal bio fertilizer programme on a regional basis, survey, isolation and screening of stress-tolerant cyanobacteria have been started at various parts of India. The soils of Chhattisgarh state comprise mostly of iron- rich red soil, laterite soil, and red and yellow soil and brown forest soil. So the above study comprises the characterization of physical and chemical properties collected from 4 districts of Chhattisgarh state.
