Biofertilizers are living microorganisms which provide nutrients to the crops through nitrogen fixation and phosphorous solubilization processes. They also assist in maintaining the quality of the soil and promoting sustainable agriculture. The various types of biofertilizers include, nitrogen fixing biofertilizers, phosphate solubilizing biofertilizer, plant growth promoting Rhizobacteria, and biofertilizers for micronutrients. They are cost effective and are a renewable source of plant nutrients. Concerns for sustainable agricultural land has increased with the use of chemical fertilizers, which has created immense scope for biofertilizers.
