Biofertilizer Production

Repeated use of land for farming leads to depletion of nutrients. This can lead to a drop in crop productivity. Use of chemical fertilizers leads to pollution of the environment and a downward trend in soil health. Use of biofertilizers can address this problem and be a mainstay for sustainable agriculture. Hence the need for training manpower in the development and use of biofertilizers.
