Field trials were conducted to check the ability of algal fertilizer and is compared with different organic and inorganic fertilizers. Some of the extremely good algal species were checked on the basis of nutrient content and utilized as bio fertilizer in laboratory as well as in field and shown outstanding results. The result includes good water holding capacity of soil, well aeration to root part, good soil binding capacity and supplement of continuous and calculated nutrient to the soil. The effectiveness of algae as a soil conditioner can be indicated by average improvement in physio- chemical property of soil or improvement in plant growth. This reduces ill effect of chemical fertilizers eco friendly and shows sustainable results. Modern world is moving towards a life with balanced eco system which is obtained by modern generation bio fertilizer made of algal species which shows better results.
