India in its agricultural domain is encountering the problem of feeding the growing population along with using the land sustainably. The use of chemical fertilizers has massively increased the rate of production but indiscriminate use of these chemical fertilizers has further mystified the natural system and have caused many environmental and health related problems. Due to direct uses of chemical and inorganic fertilizers drastic problems has been arisen and the fertility has been decreased since last decades. Algal bio-fertilizers is an emerging option for the present farming era. The aim of this work is an extension of approach towards cultivating Vigna radiata, a leguminous plant treated with algal bio-fertilizer and is compared with the different chemical fertilizers to notice the growth parameters which is a biotechnological approach. A pot experiment was carried out for 60 days to evaluate the effect of algal bio-fertilizer on Vigna radiata by comparing the growth parameters with respect to FYM, NPK and combination of these three. A finding of the experiment reveals that the treatment of algal bio-fertilizer in combination with FYM showed significant result than the other treatments. The principle of this study is the simple and basic approach for using algae as a bio-fertilizer and large scale experiment has to be conducted in future to prove the sustainability of this approach.
