Biofertilizers


Biofertilizers contain living organisms which, when applied to seeds or to soil, increase plant growth. Examples are organisms that increase nitrogen fixation or phosphorus solubility from the soil. Biofertilizers are preferred over chemical fertilizers because they do not contain any chemicals which are harmful to the living soil or the environment.
