The term ‘biofertilizer’ or 'microbial inoculants/fertilizer’ can be generally defined as a preparation containing live or latent cells of efficient strains capable of nitrogen fixation, phosphate solubilization which are used for application of seed and soil with the objective of increasing the number of such microorganisms and accelerating certain microbial processes to enhance the degree of availability of nutrients to the plants. Increasing cost of chemical fertilizers is unaffordable by small and marginal farmers. The widening gap between nutrient removal and supplies is responsible for depletion of soil fertility. By considering the threat to sustainable agriculture by the use of chemical fertilizers and human activity, there is a growing concern about environmental hazard management. Besides the above facts, the long-term use of organic fertilizers is economical, ecofriendly, more efficient, productive and accessible over chemical fertilizers to marginal and small farmers.

Keywords: Ecofriendly, microbial inoculants, plant growth promotion, rhizosphere
