Changing the face of farming in India
- Biofertilizers are formulations comprised of living microbial cells, either a single strain or multiple strains (mixed or consortium), that promote plant growth by increasing nutrient availability and acquisition. Biofertilizers provide atmospheric nitrogen directly to plants and aid in solubilisation and mineralisation of other plant nutrients which results in improved crop yield.
- Biofertilizers are cost effective, environment-friendly, and natural in composition. These are effective alternatives to the hazardous synthetic fertilizers.
- Biofertilizers serve the dual purpose of improving the productivity of the crops as well as replenishing essential nutrients in the soil for sustainable farming in the long run.
