Why the Biotech Approach
Nature in all its wonders has provided the basic elements necessary for plant growth (Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium) freely available in the soil and air. Microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi convert these freely available nutrients of nature into soluble and available forms, which can be easily consumed by the plants.
Over the years, we have used organic matter such as manure, foliage, plant extracts, etc., as fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides. These increased the yield and quality of the crops although it was slow acting. With the advent of modernization and technology, however, global population increased and more people had to be fed. At this stage, use of natural waste materials reduced since they could no longer keep up with the demand of feeding the world’s population. Following this, synthetic fertilizers and chemical inputs started being used more and more in the Green Revolution.
After the initial boom, however, the yield started to reduce continually leading to low yield and low quality of crops. This was because the microorganisms in the soil and organic matter were destroyed by the excessive use of chemical fertilizers and inorganic agro chemicals. Usage of synthetic and inorganic chemicals not only affects the plants and soil, but also the environment and ecology with the accumulation of chemical residues, spoiling of the ground water system and the animals that live in that eco -system. Residues in the output of crops leads to diseases and has adverse effects on the health of human beings.
