Download or read book entitled Applications of Biosurfactant in Agriculture by author: Dr. Inamuddin which was release on 15 August 2021 and published by Academic Press with total page 524 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Applications of Biosurfactant in Agriculture explores the use of beneficial microorganisms as an alternative to current synthetic plant protection strategies. The book highlights a range of renewable raw substrates including agro-industrial waste as a dependable and cost-effective technology for the mass production of biosurfactant emphasizes the formulation of biosurfactant using a full-factorial design, scientometric assessment, and presents mathematical modeling for the enhancement of production processes. Recent biotechnological techniques such as functional metagenomics that could help in the molecular characterization of novel biosurfactant with multifunctional activities majorly from uncultured and unexploited microbes available in the soil biosphere are also explored. The book also identifies possible modes of action by which nutrients are normally released to plants through the formation of metal-biosurfactant complexes and presents recent research findings on the utilization of biosurfactants for the management mycotoxins inducing microorganisms when evaluated at field and greenhouse. Finally, the book emphasizes the application of biosurfactants as a form of potent antibiotics for the management of several zoonotic diseases and in animal husbandry. Provides a comprehensive look at recent advances in the application of nanobiosurfactants for the management of agricultural pests, post harvest management, and diseases Includes application in both plant and animal agriculture Highlights the effective production of biosurfactants by diverse microbial populations, especially from uncultivated agricultural soil
