Bio-fertilizer is a substance used to increase the fertility of the soil. It contains micro-organisms which helps the soil to gain its nutrient back and make the soil available for cultivation. Bio-fertilizer doesnt make any kind of pollution, so it is not a threat to use them in the place of the chemical fertilizers which causes a lot of pollution to the environment.
Biofertilizers differs from the fertilizers in the following way. Fertilizers usually increases the fertility of the soil whereas the biofertilizers add the nutrients to the soil through the natural processes like nitrogen fixation, phosphorous solubilization and synthesis of the growth promoting substances.
