Abstract:

The present study aimed at studying the biostimulant effect of cyanobacterial cultures on the growth parameters of Coriandrum Sativum. Cyanobacteria helped in absorption of atmospheric carbon dioxide and reduced its concentration to the level which is suitable for evolution of higher organisms. It is one of the oldest microbes and has evolved in many beneficial ways. It is known to produce exopolysaccharides, phytohormones and also have inherent nitrogen, phosphate and potassium for healthy growth of other plants. In this study, intact cyanobacterial cells were used for seed treatment and as foliar application on Coriandrum sativum and its effects were compared to untreated plants with respect to different growth parameters. In case of seed treated (ST) plants the percent germination, number of branches, root length, Chlorophyll a, Chlorophyll b were found to be increased as compared to untreated (UT) plants. While in case of foliar spray treatment (FST), shoot length, number of branches, Chlorophyll a and Chlorophyll b content were found to be increased as compared to UT plants. Thus application of cyanobacterial culture on vegetables may result in increased production organically. The results showed positive effect of both seed treatment and foliar spray treatment on C. sativum plants.
