Mukesh Kumar and Kuldeep Kumar
Bio-fertilizers are considered as an alternative to chemical fertilizers in modern vegetable production. Green revolution was needed at that time because we had to increase the yield of vegetable in any way. This is the reason why we used chemical fertilizers indiscriminately. There is no doubt that the Green Revolution has brought the country out of hunger-like problems. Obviously the chemical fertilizers are expensive, not environment friendly and they are also responsible for water, air and soil pollution. Moreover, they may destroy the fertility of the soil in a long run. In view of these reasons, the scientist has found the option of chemical fertilizers through bio-fertilizers. Bio-fertilizers contain microorganisms which promote the adequate supply of nutrients to the host plants and ensure their proper development of growth and regulation in their physiology.
