Abstract: Azolla is a tiny floating fern with small alternating leaves and simple roots that hang beneath the water; the cavities of its leaves shelter microscopic nitrogen-fixing Anabaena cyanobacteria. The Azolla-Anabaena symbiotic relationship represents a proven green bio fertilizer for rice and many other Ecuadorian crops, such as bananas.
