Abstract

Study conducted to know the utilization pattern of biofertilizers and organic manures in Durg district revealed that integrated nutrient management (INM) strategy is getting positive recognition among farmers. Analyses of 10 years data (1995-96 to 2004-2005) indicated that utilization of biofertilizers in terms of acreage was higher than organic components. Among components, use of PSB (38.64%) was maximum followed by rhizobium culture (20.48%) Azotobactor (10.02%) and vermicompost (0.16%). Data further suggested that the potential and prospects of further expansion of the technology for which a core strategy is needed for enhancement of technological adoption by resource poor farmers.
