The increasing world population and its pressure on higher food production through the cultivation of high yielding varieties and its intensification has resulted in a greater demand of fertilizer use especially nitrogen. But the synthetic N fertilizers are costly and scarcity due to the non- availability and high prices of raw materials. Besides this, the poor economy of Bangladesh framers does not allow to use recommended doses of fertilizers due to the low cost benefit ratio, Where as the excessive use of fertilizer is creating pollution of the environment in developed countries. Therefore scientists and planners of both developed and developing countries are interested to search the alternate technology to reduce the dependence on the synthetic nitrogen fertilizer. The answer to this organic fertilizer.
organic matter ( OM ) in soil considered to be the life blood of soil. Usually in a fertile and productive soil, the OM contents should be 3%- 5% where as in the soil of our country, the OM content varies form 0.75% -1.5% In some cases the OM content is found to be less that considering the important role plays by organic matter for the maintenance of soil fertilizer and its productivity visa- vis the alarming condition of organic content in Bangladesh soil, The increasing intensify of land use resulted in a serious exhaustion of plant nutrients from the soil, Since fertile soil is the fundamental resource for higher crop production, it maintenance is a pre-requisite for long term sustainable agricultural production, About 70% of our cultivated land of the country has soil organic matter below critical level (< 1.5% OM) . Most soils in highland and medium highland and situation of greater areas are extremely low organic matter content (1% OM ) there is increased use of crop residues and cow dung as fuel which diverting valuable nutrients and organic matter away from the soils (Miah. et all 1993). There is a great source of organic fertilizer in Bangladesh which may be utilized in the crop filed. organic fertilizer prepared in improved scientific method. It contains N,P,K,S Ca, Mg, B. Zn and few other trace elements.
Notes:field experiment was conducted at the tuber crops Research center (TCRC) farm of Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI). Gazipur during the period from Dec 2006 to march 2007 in order to study the effect of Northern Organic Fertilizer on growth and yield of potato cv. Diamant. The highest gross & marketable yields of tubers (23.68 & 21.28 ton/ ha, respectively.
Notes:Performance of Northern Jaibo sar (organic Fertilizer) on the growth & yield of wetland Rice. The Performance of this fertilizer was evaluated at BRRI farm Gazipur , Bangladesh in T. aman Rice, 2005 and Boro rice 2006.
“50% Reduction of Chemical Fertilizer on STB along with Northern Jabio Sar @ 500 Kg/ha may be a good combination of organic and inorganic fertilizer for sustaining soil fertility and increasing T. aman & Boro Rice”.
Notes:A field study was conducted with the Northern organic fertilizer during 2005-06 in two locations at BSRI farm Ishurdi and RSRS farm. Thakurgaon , Bangladesh under High ganges Rikver flood plain (AEZ- 11) and old Himalayan Piedmont plain soils (AEZ-1), respectively. The average result of two locations,, it was found that the treatment having integrated application of 75% recommended chemical fertilizers along with Northern organic fertilizer at 750Kg/ ha Showed higher net benefit of Taka 27653 with BCR 1.52.
