We demonstrate scientific methodologies regarding appropriate usege of Microbial Biofertilizers & Biopesticides so as to vijualise their effectivity.
Our company - K-FERTS LAB is named after renouned Plant Pathologist Late Dr. Kalidas ShankarRao Deshpande, Princilpal & Head, Post Graduate Department of Botany, NES Science College, Nanded. The K in K-FERTS LAB is taken from first letter of his name "Kalidas".
Dr. Deshpande has about 150 research papers to his credit. More than 25 students have completed their Ph.D. degrees in various fields like Seed Pathology, Microbial enzymes and Toxins, Plant Protection, Pathogenic Air Mycoflora, Environmental Pollution, Microbiology etc. under his guidance.
Under the scheme 'Young Scientist Exchange Program of Government of India, he was offered an opportunity to work in 'PLANT PATHOLOGY LABORATORY' of world renouned PLANT PATHOLOGIST - PROF. R.K.S. WOOD at London.
He devoted his entire life in grooming his students in the field of Plant Pathology. He also started plant pathological consulting services free of cost, through his wisely developed PLANT DISEASE CLINIC to farmers of Marathwada, a region of Maharashtra, India.
His message to the scientific community all over the globe was-
"Your Research' should not die within four walls of Research Laboratories in conical flasks and test tubes by suffocating.....they must come out and flourish the prosperity of mankind"

The promoter of our company MrB.B. Pendkar is a Plant pathologist and giving his services to farmers for the last 45+years.
Mr.Neeraj Pendkar-Microbiologist is CEO of the company.
Our team of workers comprises experts in production,marketing , extension of the microbial Biofertilizer technology up to field level. We are equipped with ON FARM TRAINING to practically explain and execute the methodology regarding the scientific usage of the microbial biofertilizer technology. Uptil now the company has successfully executed the ‘Implementation of Field application scheme of Biofertilizers and Micronutrients formulation for sugarcane’ on about 12000 acres. The company also gives Plant pathological consultancy services along with updated biological/microbial inputs wherever required.
Our vision and mission is for the creation of a world with healthy soils and healthy crops with microbial nutritional & protection technologies. We believe that plant health is dependent on soil health.Therefore soil health is key to crop’s productivity and profitability.Excessive and repeated use of the chemical fertilizers has led to the immense loss of soil biodiversity. Soil nutrition imbalance coupled with heavy depletion of soil organic carbon content led to unhealthy status of soils. Therefore Ag. soils globe over has been unhealthy. Our mission is to bring back soil health/crop health so that it could be a harmonious eco-friendly relationship by providing scientific adequate nutrition/protection to plants/crops through microbial means. We believe that this will result in maximum ROI along with eco friendly relationship.
Depletion of organic carbon content of the soil also encouraged the increased incidences of bacterial,fungal,viral diseases and increased the frequencies of new pest attacks.Currently there are scientific evidences that organic carbon content of soil and soil microflora plays important role in suppressing many of the microbial pathogens.Therefore,microbial composting technological tool is most important in our overall activities regarding improving the soil health. We believe with this approach towards pathogen,will keep the population of pathogen below economic threshold level .We all know that the number of pathogen below economic threshold level are safe and keep our crop's profitability intact.
As we all know composting technology plays an important role in sequestration of soil carbon and that is an important recommendation for Ag.ADAPTATIONS under the climate change crisis.
We have been in the field of Microbial /biological input services for the last 45+ years. Our company is a trusted BRAND entity to give scientific and quality inputs/services.We give first priority to gain the trust on the basis of our scientific quality products and sincere services up to the satisfaction of the farmers. We have given satisfactory technical and commercial services to many of our domestic and export customers.
