This text discusses the various aspects of biofertilizers or microbial fertilizers, which are addressed in 15 separate chapters. The first five chapters focus on the fundamental principles of microbial fertilizers. Chapter six examines the effects of horticultural crops in response to biofertilizers. The seventh chapter delves into consortial biofertilizers, which play a crucial role in sustainable production due to their multiple functions. Chapters eight through ten are dedicated to formulations, the quality of biofertilizers, and the challenges faced in their production.

Chapters 11 and 12 provide an overview of recent advances and future research perspectives in the field of biofertilizers. The 13th and 14th chapters cover the key manufacturers and essential equipment required for the production of biofertilizers. This book offers valuable and comprehensive information on the various roles of biofertilizers in horticultural crops and is an essential resource for those interested in the subject. The authors have made a concerted effort to cover all the fundamental and applied aspects of biofertilizers in this book.
