The ICAR-Central Institute for Research on Cotton Technology, Mumbai signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with M/s. Relegare Agro Life Bio Science Private Limited Ahmednagar (MH) on 21nd March 2024.

The MoU has been signed by Dr. S. K Shukla, Director, ICAR-CIRCOT and Mr. G. T. Gadekar, Director, M/s. Relegare Agro Life Bio Science Private Limited on behalf of respective organizations for development of microbial inoculum for in-situ degradation of agricultural waste.

The microbial inoculum can boost the rapid degradation of agro residues (such as sugarcane leaves after harvesting) under the field conditions. The use of microbial and biological inputs may lead to balanced use of fertilizers and may minimize the adverse impact on plant and soil health due to imbalanced fertilizers/chemicals use in agriculture.

Mr. G. T. Gadekar, Director, M/s. Relegare Agro Life Bio Science Private Limited engaged in production of quality Bio-pesticides, Bio-fertilizers, Bio-fungicide from beneficial microbes with the perfect cell count.
