The institute’s CSR GROW-SURE Technology is a unique bio-stimulant developed using highly efficient salt-tolerant bacteria strains
The ICAR-Central Soil Salinity Research Institute, Karnal, Haryana exchanged a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mittan Agritech, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh for the transfer of the CSR GROW-SURE Technology on a non-exclusive basis through Agrinnovate India (AgIn) recently.
Dr Suresh Kumar Chaudhari, Deputy Director General (Natural Resource Management & Agricultural Engineering), ICAR exchanged the MoU with Harshit Pandey, Director, Mittan Agritech Pvt Ltd during the occasion.
The institute’s CSR GROW-SURE Technology is a unique bio-stimulant developed using the highly efficient salt-tolerant bacteria strains – CSR-M-16 (Bacillus licheniformis), CSR-A-11 (Lysnibacillus fusiformis) and CSR-A-16 (Lysnibacillus sphaericus) obtained from the high-stress rhizosphere.
The bacterial consortium, cultured on a unique patented media, resulted in 10 per cent higher efficacy over the previously available CSRBIO technology and provided enhanced yield in Tomato, Banana and Rice at the different location trials. It is highly recommended for vegetables like tomato, chillies, potato, brinjal and fruits like banana, mango, etc.
