BIOTECH Bio-Organic Fertilizer Laboratory

The Bio-Organic Fertilizer (BOF) Laboratory performs research and development of microbial-based fertilizers. It has developed microbial inoculants technology for efficient conversion of agro-industrial wastes into quality biofertilizers as low-cost agricultural farm input. The laboratory also uses DNA-based techniques to formulate efficient microbial consortia as biostimulant for plants for increased crop productivity. BOF Lab is involved in hosting students (high school/university students) in the conduct of their thesis, practicum, and on-the-job training, among others. It offers training and extension on BOF Technology and publishes papers on biofertilizer development on microbial formulations for crop and soil productivity.
