Importance of the role of microbes and microbial biotechnology in improving the quality of life has been recognized worldwide.
The world's population is estimated to be double by the end of 2033. This poses a great challenge to agricultural systems. Traditional farming equipment and practices are reaching their limits of effectiveness in increasing agricultural productivity. As countries develop, people are also demanding more and better food. These pressures are multiplied by shrinking farmland, rising labour costs and shortage of farm workers.
Microbial technologies offer an additional method to improve the sustainability of existing system to produce more and better quality of our agricultural products. The benefits of microbial technologies are numerous and include providing resistance to crop pests, increasing crop yield and reducing chemical pesticide usage.
What is Microbes: Effective Microorganisms or Microbial Technology is now become a Global technology with an enormous following around the world. It is used in many systems pertaining to agriculture and environmental management. These range from as an organic fertilizer, in crop and animal production systems, to livestock and aquaculture units.
The Microbes have demonstrated their effectiveness on ecosystem improvement of the soil micro flora, promotions of crop root development and recovery of polluted environments. This makes them ideal for getting the natural processes to function, the way nature intended.
