This study describes the successful cultivation of an indigenous (from Nakhonsawan) extrapolysaccharide-producing algal strain, and demonstrates its soil-conditioning potential in a greenhouse environment. The results show that local algal resources have potential as soil conditioners. The process involved surveying soil algae to identify potential candidates, selection of the most suitable candidate followed by optimisation for biomass production. mass cultivation and soil inoculation.
