Most of the farmers are practiced in their conventional methods and they are not interested to upgrade or modify themselves towards the improved and long term cropping due to their illiteracy. This conventional methods have lots of drawbacks as following:

  • Unnecessary use of high dose of chemical fertilizers herm the soil nutrients as well as the crop. Use of high amount of Nitrogen fertilizers makes the plants succulent and more prone to insect and pathogens. In other hand large dose of nitrogen hampers the uptake of other essential nutrients, shows deficiency of others.
  • More use of concentrated chemical fertilizers alter the soil pH, soil structure and after all the soil health. That kind of soil will be fail to long term crop production, also reduction of nutrient use efficiency, further application will not give any satisfactory increase in yield. Over fertilizing also increase the weed growth and their populations. Also produce ground and other water pollutions by residual chemicals.
