How is the presence of cyanobacteria in paddy fields beneficial to the rice crop?

Asked by Topperlearning User 11th June 2014, 9:25 AM
Answered by Expert

Cyanobacteria can fix atmospheric nitrogen. The soil conditions in paddy fields provide suitable environment for the growth of nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria act as important biofertilisers. They also add organic matter to the soil and increase its fertility.
