In Indian most of the farming techniques utilization of chemical fertilizer is largely prevalent. Which is not as environmentally safe as other methods and techniques like organic farming and FAITH gardening. Use of liquid bio-fertilizers like nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria phosphate solubilizing bacteria is gradually gaining importance as they are being proved to be eco-friendly. Augment the availability of nutrients the availability of nutrients. To promote the use of liquid bio-fertilizers with practices like FAITH gardening among the local people and communities, a comparative analysis of effects of cyanobacteria and PSB on the growth, viral tolerance and vegetable yields of plants was studied. It was observed in the study that use of liquid bio-fertilizers like cyanobacteria and PSB had greatly enhanced the germination, growth rate, viral tolerance, flowering and fruiting in plants. Studies have demonstrated that in place of conventional chemical fertilizers, liquid fertilizers are much better alternatives and practices like FAITH (Food Always In The Home) gardening can help families and communities to reduce their daily food expense Considering the high cost of vegetables and the rate of malnutrition in the country today. Home gardening should be taken seriously by families with low income and by those where members are nutritionally at risk.
