Strategies to Popularize Biofertilizers

1. The production potential and cost effectiveness of the biofertilizers can be demonstrated to the rice farmers in a convincing way so as to disseminate the technology at a faster rate. In this aspect, the block level compact frontline demonstrations can be taken up in the entire major rice growing ecosystem.

2. The All India Radio, Dooradarshan and private television channels can come forward to broadcast and telecast the talk and presentations of biofertilizers experts in local langu

Field level constraints of Biofertilizers

1. The benefits of biofertilizer application depend on several soil and crop management aspects in field conditions. 2. Soil and climatic problems such as unfavorable pH, high temperature, drought, high nitrate, deficiency of P, Mo, Fe, Cu, Co, presence of toxic elements, competition from the native strains and compatibility with lost genotypes, lack of knowledge and availability of quality products, use of substandard inoculants, lack of proper handling or faulty inoculation methods are imp

Marketing level constraints of Biofertilizers

1. Retail fertilizer dealers do not keep biofertilizers mainly because of the short shelf likfe, limited demand and lack of storage facilities. 2. These are major constraints in the availability of biofertilizers in the market. Shelf life of carrier based inoculants, which are currently being produced, is usually three months or not more than six months. 3. Further due to poor awareness among framers as well as development staff (Extension Staff) demand of biofertilizers is not increasi

Production and distribution level constraints in Biofertilizers

1. Unavailability of appropriate and location specific strains, efficient, competitive and high N fixer with wide range of host under diverse environmental conditions, N fixing ability under high available soil N conditions, survival and persistence in soil, mobility in soil, ability to survive in moisture deficient, high temperature and adverse soil conditions etc.

a. Unavailability of good carrier material: Currently using inner materials are peat, charcoal,lignite, mixture of FYM and
