The effect of cyanobacterial isolates on growth performance and yield status of Triticum aestivum, Zea mays and Hordium vulgare was studied. Fifteen cyanobacterial isolates were used individually and in combination to study the effect of their consortium on the growth performance and grain yield of Wheat, Maize and Barley. The growth performance was measured in association with cyanobacterial isolates individually and in combination. The use of combination of all these cyanobacterial isolates in consortium with these cereal crops showed significant increase in shoot and root lengths and grain yield. The results reveal that these cyanobacterial isolates could bring about positive results in the improvement of Wheat, Maize and Barley crops and might prove to be an effective biofertilizers.

Keywords: Cyanobacteria, Consortium, Biofertilizers, Wheat, Maize, Barley.
