"Lab to Land" Objectives

To introduce the application of biofertilizer, biopesticide technology in backward /remote villages of Nandurbar, Dhule & Jalgaon, Districts of North Maharashtra region & disseminate its know-how adoption (viz. Rhizobium, Azotobacter, Azospirillum, BGA, & Phosphate solubilizers, Mycorrhizae) as low cost bioinputs.

  • To demonstrate the techno-economic viability of the biofertilizers / biopesticides to farmers through field demonstration at farmer's field & by know-how training.

  • To introduce rural based economically viable & self income generation / Entrepreneurship & Skill Development Programme (ESDP) on Biofertilizers / biopesticide production using indigenously designed low cost fermenter with the assistance of SHG in a manner to conceptualize indigenous cottage industry at rural & tribal areas.

  • To prepare literature and promulgate in local language through booklets / documents etc. about; the benefits of biofertilizers for farming in villages through trained beneficiaries/ cultivators as multiplier impact.

  • To demonstrate the effectiveness of biofertilizer cultural practices in the farmers fieldsfor enhanced crop productivity through bioreclamation of waste/ marginal land

  • To raise the rural/tribal economy & living standard of the lowly of the lowest backward farming community especially SC & ST and marginal farmers.

  • To create self employment opportunities to weaker underprivileged SC & ST and marginal farmers.

  • To produce and impart training of ecofriendly agricultural inputs so as to nullify the ill effects of chemical fertilizers.

  • To demonstrate the know-how technology pertinent to microbiological and physico-chemical analyses of soil samples and their assessment.

  • To demonstrate the low cost media preparation and cultural practices in biofertilizer / biopesticide production.
