Biofertilizer Impacts on Cassava (Manihot Esculenta Crantz) Cultivation: Improved Soil Health and Quality, Igbariam, Nigeria
Received Date: December 06, 2019; Published Date: December 16, 2019
Cassava crop cultivation microbiome impacts by microbial biofertilizer is an integral function of the agro-ecology, its evolution (yield, soil health and quality) for sustainable agriculture. Increased yield and nutrient bioavailability powered by co-inoculation of microbial consortia adaptability to the soil ecology. Biofertilizer solves the traceability problem of chemical farm inputs, suitability and nutrient use efficiency as an integral function of the rhizosphere microbiome ‘tailor’ integrated soil fertility management that improves micronutrient and macronutrient via plant microbe interactions for soil health quality and crop degradation management.Mycorrhizal spp mutualistic symbiosis with plant roots satisfies the crop nutrients requirements. Aspergillus spp, Bacillus spp and Clostridium spp in the biofertilizer enhances potassium solubilization, a major challenge in cassava crop nutrition development of the biomass and mineralization. Soil organic matter improvement as a function of biofertilizer application help management of carbon sequestration and climate vulnerabilities.
