Growth and composition of Rauvolfia Serpentina influenced by Blue Green Algae as Biofertilizer

Hemant Kumar and Jitendra Mohan


Sarpagandha (Rauvolfia serpentina, L.) plants cultured as soil-pot culture conditions with different doses nil (control), 25, 50, 75, 100 and 125g BGA (Aulosira fertilissma) per Kg soil. As compared to control, each level of BGA (cyanobacteria) supply showed highly significant (P- 0.01) increase in dry matter yield and catalase activity of both 30 and 60 days old tops and roots of Sarpagandha plants. However, increase in peroxidase activity at each level of BGA supply, as compared to control, was found to be highly significant (P-0.01) in tops of 30 and 60 days old Sarpagandha plants.
