Biofertilizers to boost farm output

Author: Lokmangal Biofertilizers

After the introduction of chemical fertilizers in the last century, farmers were happy of getting increased yield in agriculture in the beginning. But slowly chemical fertilizers started displaying their ill-effects such as leaching out, and polluting water basins, destroying micro-organisms and friend insects, making the crop more susceptible to the attack of diseases reducing the soil fertility and thus causing irreparable damage on the overall system.

The n number of intellectuals throughout the world started working on the alternatives and found that biofertilizers shall help in increasing the yield without making damages as narrated above.

What is biofertilizer?

The name itself is self explanatory. The fertilizers are used to improve the fertility of the land using biological wastes, hence the term biofertilizers, and biological wastes do not contain any chemicals which are detrimental to the living soil. They are extremely beneficial in enriching the soil with those micro-organisms,which impart organic nutrients to the farm produces and impart strength to combat with diseases too. The farm produces do not contain traces of hazardous and poisonous materials. Thus those products are accepted across the world as Organic ones. Hence for organic farming the use of biofertilizers is mandatory.
