What is Bio Fertilizer?
Bio Fertilizer is a Natural organic fertilizer known that helps to provide all the nutrients required by the plants and helps to increase the quality of the soil with a natural micro-organism environment.Our fertilizers are 100% natural organic material from the nutrient-rich lands of Costa Rica, that could be easily applied with water over your plantations on any stage, or use it as a base for creating a potent and concentrated natural organic liquid fertilizers that could be used in many different growing mediums with excellent production results for organic farming, industrial and home applications such as gardening. Bio Fertilizers are the most advanced bio technology necessary to support developing organic agriculture, sustainable agriculture, green agriculture and non-pollution agriculture. This Bio-organic Fertilizer can increase the output, improve the quality and it is responsible for agriculture environment. Today, it has been widely used with excellent results in all kinds of plants and several countries. Organic fertilizers differ from chemicals fertilizers in that they feed your plants while adding organic material to the soil. Soils with lots of organic matter remain loose and airy, hold more moisture and nutrients, foster growth of soil organisms, and promote healthier plant root development. If only chemicals are added the soil gradually loses its organic matter and micro biotic activity. As organic matter is used up, the soil structure deteriorates, becoming compact, lifeless and less able to hold water and nutrients. These results in increased amounts of chemical fertilizers needed to feed plants. We also like organic fertilizers because theyre made from renewable resources; chemicals are not.
Why should we use biofertilizers?
With the introduction of green revolution technologies the modern agriculture is getting more and more dependent upon the steady supply of synthetic inputs (mainly fertilizers), which are products of fossil fuel (coal+ petroleum). Adverse effects are being noticed due to the excessive and imbalanced use of these synthetic inputs. This situation has lead to identifying harmless inputs like biofertilizers. Use of such natural products like biofertilizers in crop cultivation will help in safeguarding the soil health and also the quality of crop products.
What are the benefits from using biofertilizers?
Increase crop yield by 20-30%.
Replace chemical nitrogen and phosphorus by 25%.
Stimulate plant growth.
Activate the soil biologically.
Restore natural soil fertility.
Provide protection against drought and some soil borne diseases.
What are the advantages of bio-fertilizers?
Supplements to fertilizers.
Eco-friendly (Friendly with nature).
Reduces the costs towards fertilizers use, especially regarding nitrogen and phosphorus.
How biofertilizers are applied to crops?
200 g of nitrogenous biofertilizer and 200 g of Phosphotika are suspended in 300-400 ml of water and mixed thoroughly. Ten kg seeds are treated with this paste and dried in shade. The treated seeds have to be sown as soon as possible.
Seedling root dip:
2For rice crop, a bed is made in the field and filled with water. Recommended biofertilizers are mixed in this water and the roots of seedlings are dipped for 8-10 hrs.
4 kg each of the recommended biofertilizers are mixed in 200 kg of compost and kept overnight. This mixture is incorporated in the soil at the time of sowing or planting.
Which precautions should take for using biofertilizers?
Biofertilizer packets need to be stored in cool and dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.
Right combinations of biofertilizers have to be used.
As Rhizobium is crop specific, one should use for the specified crop only.
Other chemicals should not be mixed with the biofertilizers.
While purchasing one should ensure that each packet is provided with necessary information like name of the product, name of the crop for which intended, name and address of the manufacturer, date of manufacture, date of expiry, batch number and instructions for use.
The packet has to be used before its expiry, only for the specified crop and by the recommended method of application.
Biofertilizers are live product and require care in the storage
Both nitrogenous and phosphatic biofertilizers are to be used to get the best results.
It is important to use biofertilizers along with chemical fertilizers and organic manures
Biofertilizers are not replacement of fertilizers but can supplement plant nutrient requirements.
