As per Bio-fertilizer Act (GoI), the testing of bio-manures for chemical and microbial parameters is mandatory. The laboratory methods to test these parameters are lengthy, cumbersome and require sophisticated laboratory facilities. Hence it becomes difficult for a village level producer to get his sample tested on the spot for preliminary essential tests. Keeping this in view the Rural Bio-processing Section has developed a bio-manure diagnostic kit. It consists of two parts viz Part I: NPK testing kit for the estimation of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium and Part II: Microbial diagnostic kit to test to microbial population in the biomanures .
