Special attention is given to the micro-organisms in the soil, their roles and interactions. Thus in a broad sense, the book will be useful to the students of Microbiology, Botany, Biochemistry and Agricultural Microbiology, both at the under-graduate and post-graduate level. This book contains ten chapters, model question papers and wherever possible, the basic experiments that have led to our present understanding of soil and agricultural microbiology. The present need of our country is to enhance crop production and crop protection using biotechnological tools. Therefore, for the interest of students a separate chapter on agricultural biotechnology has been included.
