FIB-SOL Life Technologies Boosts Organic Farming Using Low Cost Bio-Fertilisers


Introduction

FIB-SOL Life Technologies’ nanofiber applications - ultra-lightweight membranes and gel helps fertilise large areas of farmland using a small amount of the same.

Product or concept

Develops low-cost bio-fertilisers to improve crop yield and soil quality.

Problem being solved

The developed nano-fibre technologies helps to lower costs, improve crop yield, and enhance soil quality.

Process or technology involved

Products Developed:

  • The first product is an ultra-lightweight membrane to embed agri-inputs, such as fertilisers, pesticides and biostimulants. It is a 5g tissue embedded with bio-actives that can be dissolved in water and used for fertilising an acre of farmland.
  • The second product is a liquid gel (N-SOL SP) available as a 25 ml bottle in the market. Contains microbes that provide adequate nutrients and make the farmland more fertile.

The products are recommended for crops like wheat, rice, bajra, soya, ground nut, and many more

Sustainability benefits

  • Low-weight biodegradable and low-cost biofertilizer
  • Improves product shelf life for manufacturers
  • Increases inventory efficiency
  • Boost farmers’ income
  • Increases farm yield and crop health up to 20% provided reasonable weather is there.

User segments that will benefit

  • Farmers
  • Municipal Corporations
