    The present book provides the state of agro-ecosystem vis-a-vis environment and outlines future directions so that sustainable agriculture is achieved without causing extensive damage to the fragile agro-ecosystem.;The present book entitled Concept of Tropical Agriculture is the compilation of some most recent research articles of eminent Price Range: $ - $ Biological Nitrogen Fixation Biological nitrogen fixation is one alternative to nitrogen fertilizer. It is carried out by prokaryotes using an en-zyme complex called nitrogenase and results in atmospheric N 2 being reduced into a form of nitrogen diazotro-phic organisms and plants are able to use (ammonia).File Size: KB.

    Beyond biological nitrogen fixation: Legumes and the Sustainable Intensification of smallholder farming systems B Vanlauwe, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Nairobi, Kenya [with many colleagues and partners] The astonishing flexibility of Size: 3MB. Nitrogen fixation is a key component of the nitrogen cycle, one of the most fundamental cycles in the biosphere. Conversion of atmospheric nitrogen into organic nitrogen compounds can be carried out only by certain bacteria and blue-green algae (cyanobacteria). Some nitrogen fixing bacteria live symbiotically with leguminous plants such as peas, beans, clover, and certain tropical trees in 5/5(1).

    and to be sustainable in the long-term, it will be necessary to replenish the reserves of nutrients which are removed or lost from the soil. In the case of nitrogen (N), inputs into agricultural systems may be in the form of N-fertilizer, or be derived from atmospheric N2 via biological N2 fixation (BNF). Symbiotic biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) is a complex process that involves rhizobia, a diverse group of α and β-proteobacteria bacteria, and legume species. Benefits provided by BNF associated with legume trees in tropical environments include improvements to efficiency of nitrogen (N) use, increase of soil carbon sequestration, stabilization of soil organic matter, decrease of soil.

Covering the full breadth of current nitrogen fixation research and expanding it towards future advances in the field, Biological Nitrogen Fixation will be a one-stop reference for microbial ecologists and environmental microbiologists as well as plant and agricultural researchers working on crop sustainability.

Long-term sustainability of agricultural systems must rely on the use and effective management of internal resources. The process of biological nitrogen fixation offers and economically attractive and ecologically sound means of reducing external nitrogen input and improving the quality and quantity of internal resources.

This volume considers known nitrogen-fixing systems and attempts to model the effects of mycorhizal innoculation of crops of soil nitrogen content, the socioeconomic impact of nitrogen fixation and the sustainability of nitrogen-fixing cropping systems in the tropics.

Biological nitrogen fixation is a critical and key process in sustainable agricultural systems in tropical soils, which are frequently deficient in N and susceptible to leaching of plant nutrients.

This process transforms atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia, nitrate and nitrogen : Alemayehu Dabessa, Zerihun Abebe, Solomon Bekele. The University of Hawaii NifTAL (Nitrogen Fixation by Tropical Agricultural Legumes) Center was funded by USAID through the Soil Management Collaborative Research Support Program.

NifTAL conducted research, product development and outreach activities to improve and transfer effective biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) technologies for sustainable agriculture in developing countries.

Biological nitrogen fixation (BNF), especially that associated with legumes, has great potential to contribute to productive and sustainable agricultural systems for the tropics, but more research is required to investigate how biologically fixed N, and the increased BNF contributions resulting from research innovations, can be incorporated into viable agricultural systems to increase crop or pasture yields Cited by:.

Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF) is a low-cost technology with potential to contribute to sustainability of African agriculture where low-input production systems are prevalent.

The African Association for Biological Nitrogen Fixation (AABNF), founded inhas as its main objective.Biological Nitrogen Fixation estimate the amount of fixed nitrogen and to select the most effective rhizobial strain x plant genotype combination.

The 15N techniques are currently the most accurate method to measure the nitrogen fixed in a given system. The elite strains will be then used for the inoculum production.Symbiotic associations between legumes and rhizobia are responsible for the greatest contributions of biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) in agricultural systems.

Data collected from pulses, legume oilseeds, and pastures growing in farmers’ fields generally indicate the levels of BNF much lower than the potential values observed under Author: Mark B. Peoples.
