Book Description :

Applications of Biosurfactant in Agriculture explores the use of beneficial microorganisms as an alternative to current synthetic plant protection strategies. The book highlights a range of renewable raw substrates including agro-industrial waste as a dependable and cost-effective technology for the mass production of biosurfactant, emphasizes the formulation of biosurfactants using a full-factorial design, scientometric assessment, and presents mathematical modeling for the enhancement of production processes. Recent biotechnological techniques such as functional metagenomics that could help in the molecular characterization of novel biosurfactant with multifunctional activities majorly from uncultured and unexploited microbes available in the soil biosphere are also explored. This book identifies possible modes of action by which nutrients are normally released to plants through the formation of metal-biosurfactant complexes and presents recent research findings on the utilization of biosurfactants for the management of mycotoxins and microorganisms when evaluated in the field and in greenhouses. Finally, the book emphasizes the application of biosurfactants as a form of potent antibiotics for the management of several zoonotic diseases and in animal husbandry. Provides a comprehensive look at recent advances in the application of nanobiosurfactants for the agricultural pest, post-harvest, and disease management Includes examples of application in both plant and animal agriculture Highlights the effective production of biosurfactants by diverse microbial populations, especially from uncultivated agricultural soil

Book Description :

Biosurfactants are surface-active biomolecules produced by a wide variety of microorganisms. They can be produced from renewable sources, and possess high surface activity, high specificity, low toxicity, tolerance to pH, temperature and ionic strength, biodegradability, excellent emulsifying and demulsifying ability, antimicrobial activity, ability. Biosurfactants have found applications in several industries including organic chemicals, petroleum, petrochemicals, mining, metallurgy (mainly bioleaching), agrochemicals, fertilizers, foods, beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and many others. The enormous diversity of biosurfactants make them an interesting group of materials for application in many areas such as agriculture and food. Both epiphytic and endophytic plant associate microbes produce biosurfactants and have vital role in motility, signaling and biofilm formation. In addition, biosurfactants are used to aid germination, act as biocontrol agents, and bioremediation of contaminated soil, replace chemical surfactants and enhance plant microbe's interaction. Green surfactants, due to their amphipathic structure promotes seed germination, exhibit biocontrol activity by inhibition of phytopathogen and including systemic resistance in plants and also play a significant role in bioremediation of pollutants. Green surfactants are less toxic, more eco-friendly and have significant application in agriculture. The lipopeptides produced by many PGPRs can be used for many agricultural applications. Lipopeptides (LPs) are very small molecules that are synthesized by various microorganisms as form of secondary metabolites. Antimicrobial properties of lipopeptides are produced non-ribosomally in many bacteria and fungi during cultivation on various carbon sources. The main aim of this volume is to highlight the concept, classification, production and applications of microbial surfactants in food and agriculture. The book provides a comprehensive coverage of fermentation, recovery, genomics and metagenomics of biosurfactant production. It is presented in an easy-to-understand manner, and includes protocols, figures, and recent data on the industrial demand. Market and economics, and the production of biosurfactants from novel substrates are particularly worthwhile additions. The volume will be useful for students, researchers, teachers, and entrepreneurs in the area of PGPR and allied fields

Book Description :

This new volume offers comprehensive coverage of bacterial biosurfactants, the competitive new area of research that has exciting potential application in agriculture and petroleum exploration. The book helps readers to understand the synthesis of biosurfactants by some specific bacteria, their culture, and extraction toward use in bioremediation and enhanced crude oil recovery. The volume covers the gamut of topics in bacterial biosurfactants in nanostructure, including their comparison to synthetic surfactants, their interaction with microorganisms, and their biochemistry, characterization, genetics of production, bioremedial effects, and more. The volume also explores the myriad uses of bacterial biosurfactants, including in laundry detergents, cosmetics, food production, petroleum, agriculture, medicine and therapeutics, environment, metallurgy, etc. Attention to biosurfactants has been gradually increasing in recent years due to the possibility of their production through fermentation technology and their potential applications in environmental protection. Despite their numerous advantages over synthetic chemical surfactants, biosurfactants have been unable to compete with chemically synthesized surfactants due to high production costs in relation to the inefficient bioprocessing techniques, poor strain productivity, and use of costly substrates. This volume helps to identify the factors that need to be addressed to reduce the cost of production of biosurfactants.
