• The agricultural industry is always under tremendous pressure to feel the rising population using the limited land & resources they have. They struggle to obtain SAD (Sustainable Agricultural Development).
  • SAD refers to the management of the natural resources in a suitable manner to be able to match the constant satiation of the material needs of the humans in the present as well as the upcoming generations. It aims to protect the land and try to increase its capacity to produce agricultural products.
  • It also works towards increasing the availability of water, plant genetic resources which are technically suitable and affordable as well as accepted by the society at large.

BioJurassic has a complete approach by providing nourishment to the plant as well as the soil. Following this multifunctional approach it’s in lieu with the SAD guidelines and it also enhances the nutritional value of the plant. Besides, it helps to balance the soil ecosystem which stops the soil from degrading. BioJurassic is made up of 4 main components:

  1. Essential micro as well as macro nutrients. The macro nutrients consist of nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, calcium etc while the micro nutrients include manganese, copper and zinc.
  2. Original Jurassic micro organisms
  3. Activated enzymes
  4. Soil organic matter as well as organic nutrients like amino acids, humic acids etc.
  • The FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) of the UN came forward with the suggestion of the idea of integrated nutrient management or INM.
  • The main aim of the INM was to enhance the effectiveness of the prevailing nutrient sources such as soil resources, mineral fertilizers, recyclable wastes, organic manures, and bio fertilizers.
  • Only organic sources and the process of recycling is not enough to match the constantly rising demand for food in a limited area of land. Besides this, due to the potential environmental issues and financial restrictions the crop nutrient needs are not matched due to mineral fertilizers.
  • Therefore a proper concoction of mineral fertilizers and organic & biological sources of nutrients is needed. These complement the organic inputs and have a positive impact which far exceeds that of the nutrient content.
  • The liebig’s Law of the minimum is well known in plant nutrition. It derives its name from the author Justus Von Liebig who stated that the growth of any plant was restricted by the nutrient which it could get in the shortest supply (as compared to the requirements of the plant). After the supply of this nutrient has been enhanced then the next limiting nutrient starts to control the growth of the plant.
  • For optimum supply of the nutrients the plant needs: adequate nutrients which can be provided to the rootzone of the soil; quick movement of the nutrients into the soil solution which moves towards the root surface; proper root growth which is able to get the nutrients which are available; unrestricted absorption of the nutrients in the presence of enough oxygen; proper movement and activity of the nutrients which are present inside the plant.
  • 13 essential nutrients are needed in order to optimize the growth of the plant and BioJurassic has 8 out of these essential micro and micro nutrients.
  • Depending on the quantity the plant needs these essential nutrients are categorized into macro nutrients and micro nutrients. Irrespective of the quantity needed all these ingredients are equally essential. However it is quite tough to give the plants the exact quantity of all these nutrients and the various interactions which take place between these nutrients makes the task even tougher. Besides this, the nutrients also have their own particular functions like mentioned here. They even need to perform some common functions and interactions.
  • In case a nutrient interaction is in synergy then its united impact is much more on the plant yield as compared to the total of their individual impact in case they are used in isolation.

Plants require support, water as well as essential nutrients from the soil. However anything in excess is sure to cause harm. The process of supplying and absorbing essential nutrients from the soil is a complex process and it needs an apt combination consisting of multiple soil properties:

  • The physical properties include the depth, the texture, the structure and the pore space. It also includes water as well as air.
  • The physico-chemical properties include the pH levels and their capacity of exchange.
  • The chemical & biological properties include the nutrient status and their transformation. It also takes into consideration the availability as well as mobility.
  • The main aim of using the most appropriate soil physical, chemical & biological conditions is to give the plants and roots the most suitable atmosphere to grow, thrive and intake the essential nutrients.

The SOM increases the soil fertility manifold. The organic matter has a positive impact on the fertility of the sol and it also enhances the productivity by:

  • Promoting the soil structure enhancement through plant leftovers and humic things, which lead to greater WHC, and enhanced soil aeration. The soil too is protected from getting eroded easily.
  • It also has an impact on the dynamics of the nutrients like the exchange of nutrients, ensuring that the nutrients are always available and protected from losses.
  • It also mobilizes the nutrients from the organic nutrient sources which have been decomposed: N, S, P, Zn etc. Nutrient mobilization from the existing mineral reserves through the complex formation, or using the modifications in the pH as well as the redox scope!
  • It also immobilizes the nutrients on both short term as well as long term basis using reverse technology. It also increases the nutrients due to the N fixation from the air.
  • BioJurassic is made up of 20% organic matter.
  • Soil typically has a lot of plant and animal life or fauna. Some fauna includes macro fauna such as earthworms, termites, grubs, ants, slugs as well as centipedes, snails & millipedes. It also includes micro fauna like protozoa, nematodes as well as rotifers.
  • The plant life or flora includes: macro as well as micro flora. The macro flora includes plant roots as well as macro algae while the micro flora includes bacteria, actinomycetes, and fungi as well as algae.
  • Besides the soil forming activities of termites, earthworms and similar large soil fauna, the numerous soil organisms or soil life too influence the physical & chemical conditions of the soil. This also transforms the organic matter as well as the plant nutrients.
  • The microbial activity controls the rate of transformation of many nutrients and converts them into available forms. These large numbers reflect the large capacity for enzyme based biochemical processes. Nitrogen (N) fixation by N-fixing free living or symbiotic bacteria is an ideal instance. BioJurassic include these vital microorganisms & activated enzymes which lead to the formation of SOM.
  • Bio fertilizers (microbial products) supply the nutrient and soil conditioners which reduce the load of agriculture and protect the environment.
  • It is essential to have proper soil condition to enhance the yield of crops and it is also detrimental for the human and animal health.
  • However it is unable to match the yield requirements of the present day farming requirements.
  • The nutrient content in case of organic manure is quite low and keeps changing. However they have their own benefits and they enhance the fertility of the soil.
  • The organic matter enhances the structure of the soil and lowers the soil erosion. It also ensures that the moisture level is retained. It gives fixed sites for some plant nutrients. But if you don’t store the manure properly and it has not been composed then a large amount of N content is lost and the atmosphere too gets polluted.
  • In some poor regions the people tend to make use of the agricultural & livestock remains as a source of energy. Just a negligible segment is reused by the land. The manure which is produced on these widely grazed lands cannot be used for the arable crops.
  • Manure is large and smelly. It isn’t easy to stock up, manage & transport. In fact, storing it is quite expensive.
