Amul Dairy Signs MoU with Anand Agricultural University for Liquid Biofertilizer Technology

May 13, 2022

Anand Agricultural University has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the transfer of liquid biofertilizer technology, which helps farmers reduce their reliance on chemical fertilizers. Dr. MK Jhala, director of research and dean of postgraduate studies, and Amit Vyas, managing director of Dairy, signed the MoU in the presence of AAU vice-chancellor Dr. K B Kathiria.

AAU and Amul Dairy will collaborate to effectively transfer liquid biofertilizer technology to reduce the usage of chemical fertilizers in agriculture.

“It is by Prime Minister Modi’s commitment to serving the interests of Indian farmers and making Indian agriculture ‘Atma Niobrara by promoting eco-friendly products,” according to an AAU announcement.

According to Jhala, the MoU is intended to promote not just the market and business of low-cost, reliable, and demand-driven liquid biofertilizer manufacturing, but also effective technology transmission to change farmers’ mindsets about using chemical fertilizers excessively.

The biggest barrier to any game-changing technology is mass adoption, according to Ramsinh Parmar, chairman of Amul Dairy.

“The global brand value of Amul and AAU will undoubtedly operate as the most active catalyst to safeguard the larger interests of the farmers and the environment,” Katherine said.
