KRIBHCO has setup a Fertilizer Complex to manufacture Urea, Ammonia, Bio-fertilizers, Argon & Seeds at Hazira in the State of Gujarat, on the bank of river Tapti, 15 Kms from Surat city on Surat – Hazira State Highway.
To promote the organic agriculture in the country, Government has initiated several initiatives like promotion of use of bio-fertilisers, bio-compost etc. KRIBHCO has been promoting the use of bio-fertilisers since many years. The society has three units to manufacture bio-fertilisers at Hazira (Gujarat), Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) and Lanjha (Maharashtra). All four popular bio-fertilisers i.e Rhizobium, Azotobactor, Azossprillium and Phosphate Soluable are produced and marketed by KRIBHCO. The Society has plans to sell around 1000 MT of bio-fertilisers during 2010-2011, which is likely to increase to about 1200 MT in next 3-5 years.
Organic Agriculture has emerged as a feasible option to concern relating to land degradations. As per the GOI directives, all fertiliser suppliers are expected to promote the use of Bio-Compost by involving actively in the marketing of the product. KRIBHCO has sufficient human resources and credible brand image to market Bio-compost. This will also help the society to generate additional margins. During the year 2010-2011 we plans to market about 19,000 MT of bio-compost which is expected to increase to about 50,000 MT in next 3 years.
