Beginning from Deep Down Inside – The Evolution

Farmers in the ancient times added manure to land but, eventually the organic fertilizer supply began to dwindle. The advent of organic farming concept has been in place for over 1,000 years when ancient agriculture practitioners began cultivation near the river belt and relied solely on natural resources. However, the high demand for food overshadowed the demand for organic fertilizer over time. In the 1950s synthetic fertilizer witnessed an unwavering adoption, fueled by claims and promises of higher yields and potential role in ending the grave volatility that farmers face in parallel with the uncertain forces of nature.

As synthetic fertilizers gained traction, organic fertilizers fell out of fashion, which looked more like swapping real food for supplements. The time bounced back once again in the favor of organic fertilizer when synthetic variants began to lose a part of their lucrativeness due to trade-offs, and expenses that followed those undeniable gains. Agricultural runoff from synthetic fertilizer contributed significantly to excess nitrogen in the air and water over the years, leading to myriad environmental and human health concerns, thereby highlighting the dire need for shifting to organic fertilizers. This upside-down journey of organic fertilizer coupled with the recent and steady rise in its adoption is even recognized by PMR, which estimated that the value of organic fertilizer market reached ~US$ 6,179.6 Mn in 2018. PMR opines that organic fertilizer market is marching at a steady pace, and is envisaged to grow at 1.8X during 2019-2029.
