Bengal Govt to promote bio-fertilisers and technology to increase productivity
The Bengal Government is keen on increasing the productivity of various plants by administering bio-fertilisers and other organic manures. Bio-fertilisers will also save people from the toxic substances used in chemical fertilisers.
The Biotechnology Department is implementing a series of programmes in this regard. Scientists and research fellows are conducting researches on bio-fertilisers.
The Government is planning to open a unit each in all the districts to provide technical assistance to farmers on increasing the productivity of what they produce using bio-fertilisers.
Scientists are also conducting tissue culture as a part of their research work at the district level to increase the productivity of plants.
The department is planning to conduct research on increasing the productivity of foodgrains and vegetables in comparatively unfertile areas of Bankura, Birbhum and Purulia.
The department has also decided to carry out research on increasing the productivity of cattle. The State Government will provide assistance to those who rear cattle.
