About Soil Biotechnology (SBT)

Soil Biotechnology is defined as the study of manipulating the soil microbial flora and their metabolic activities for conservation and remediation of the soils. It is the emerging area of biotechnology with a major focus on use of soil microbes in improving the physical properties of the soil, availability of nutrients to plants, degradation of xenobiotic and other wastes, controlling the soil-born plant pathogens, increasing the plant health and protecting the natural ecosystem. Identification and development of new microbial agents for biological control of plant pests, modification of plant pathogens for reduced virulence and bioremediation of soil is the revolutionizing aspect of biotech industries.
