Therefore, in the present book, attempts have been made on vermiculture and vermicomposting, biofertilizers and their production and production of biological pest control agents. Importance of biofertilizers, species diversity, applications and production techniques for Rhizobium, Azotobacter, Azolla, blue green algae, mycorrhizae, Azospirillum, green manure, organic composting have been described under the chapter biofertilizers and their production, while, under the chapter production of biological pest control agents, emphasis is given on the importance of biological pest control technique and mass production techniques of various BCA such as Trichogramma, Chilonus blackburni, Cryptolaemus montrouzieri and Crysoperla carnea.
