A bumper yield of crops, fruits or even flowers requires an adequate supply of
three basic elements - nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium,
along with other micro-nutrients and humus. Traditionally,
farmers have supplied these to the soil through the use
of organic manure such as cattle dung and farm wastes
Over the last 30 years there was a perceptible switch towards the use of chemical fertilizers. Extensive and repeated use of these has degraded soil quality, resulting in progressively reduced crop yield. Moreover, indiscriminate use of these chemical fertilizers has turned vast expanses of agricultural land into useless, unproductive land. In fact, every dose of chemical fertilizers is leading to further damage to the soil quality.
Furthermore, we are today exposed to toxic chemicals of all kinds which are being absorbed by our body through various media giving rise to a plethora of diseases and maladies. However, there is growing awareness among people about the hazards of toxic chemicals to mankind and more and more people are opting to eat food that has been grown organically.
We, at Biotechnology Resource Centre have striven right from its inception to address these problems to the best of our ability. In fact, BRC was established mainly to produce genuine, cost-effective, environment-friendly biofertilizers and bio-repellents for which there was a pressing need felt by the farming community. At the same time, we derive great satisfaction from the fact that we are doing our bit to reduce the dependence on chemical fertilizers and repellents that are playing havoc with our health and eco-system.
