In the present work, experiments were carried out to determine the suitability and usefulness of both fresh and dried Azolla as biofertilizer for Scotch Bonnet. Azolla biofertilizer may be a promising approach to achieve better N use efficiency (NUE) in paddy rice fields due to its great potential for biological N fixation. A field study was conducted to observe the effect of Azolla on rice yield, N uptake and its residual effect on subsequent wheat crop. Azolladeveloped into a thick.

A well-aggregated soil tills easily that is well aerated and able to produce even biofertilizr organic matter. By the second half of April, the leaf dimensions of the remaining strains were comparable to those at the outset of the experiment, with the leaves of the Milan strain bigger than those of the Sweden and Germany strains.

Phosphorus concentration was also analyzed for each tank in order to estimate the P uptake relative to Azolla growth as a guide for the programming of additions to the medium. The results obtained from these experiments suggest that the use of Azolla in Po Valley conditions has a potential, suggesting that it could be reasonable, especially for organic farms, to adopt this organic fertilizer which is also capable of reducing weed competition and is resistant to water polluted with one of the most commonly used herbicides.

Most of the species can produce large amounts of deoxyanthocyanins in response to various stresses, [12] including bright sunlight and extremes of temperature, [13] [14] causing the water surface to appear to be covered with an intensely red carpet. When rice paddies are flooded in the spring, they can be inoculated with Azollawhich then quickly multiplies to cover the water, suppressing weeds.


It is a very common native aquatic plant in Tasmania. Azolla mosquito fernduckweed fernfairy mosswater fern is a genus of seven species of aquatic ferns in the family Salviniaceae. The sample, enclosed in a tin cap, is released from an auto sampler in an oxidation column at C in a helium current; oxygen is then injected to biofeertilizer instantaneous combustion of the sample.

Azolla – Wikipedia

Abstract Azolla is a floating pteridophyte, which contains as endosymbiont biofertklizer nitrogen-fixing cyanobacterium Anabaena azollae Nostocaceae family.

Fertilizes add these to the soil and may be organic composed of organic matter or inorganic made of simple, inorganic chemicals or minerals. Herbicide treatments Table 3 generally caused stress, with an associated fall in N and C content until death ensued. Fern biomass increased linearly until 19 April, followed by a more rapid growth until 28 April.

Both the fresh and dry Azolla increased the marketable fruit yield over the control without fertilizer. This research conducted by the Institute of Environmental Biology at Utrecht Bilfertilizer indicates that massive patches of Azolla growing on the then freshwater surface of the Arctic Ocean consumed enough carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for the global greenhouse effect azoll decline, eventually causing the formation of Ice sheets in Antarctica and the current “icehouse period” which azola are still in.

However, when surface area is limiting, the fern will often grow as two or even three layers, potentially allowing the use of a nursery area around meters in length and two meters wide.

Azolla is a heterosporous pteridophyte, with seven species. A study of Arctic paleoclimatology reported that Azolla may have had a significant role in reversing an increase in greenhouse effect that occurred 55 million years ago that caused the region around the north pole to turn into a hot, tropical environment.

Azolla filiculoides red azolla is the only member of this genus and of the family Azollaceae in Tasmania. Search for related content. However, the Milan strain survived treatment with a lower but normally used on rice concentration of Propanil. Typical rates for legumes are kg of nitrogen per hectare per year those for Azolla-Anabaena are kg of nitrogen per hectare per year. The Milan strain was therefore used in a herbicide resistance study.

It was therefore considered necessary to use strains adapted to high latitudes and to local agricultural practices. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. This would reduce the amount of runoff and flooding that is becoming a repeated feature of our weather.
