Sustainable agriculture is advantageous over conventional agriculture for its capacity to accomplish food demand by utilizing environmental resources without negatively affecting it. The beneficiary role of blue-green algae (BGA) by way of supporting the nitrogen economy of paddy fields and enhancing rice productivity is well by: 5.
