Unlike chemical fertilizer, there is no organized market mechanism for biofertilizers. Presently, small scale farmers of India are producing biofertilizers to meet their own demand and selling the surplus produce through sale/purchase counters in villages. However, in view of growing demand of biofertilizers in recent years some big farmers and entrepreneurs have shown much interest and set-up their own business to produce biofertilizers on mass scale. They in turn are selling their produce through retailers. However, there is no check or quality assurance of their product by any authentic or professional agency. It is at this stage there is a need for standardization and quality control measures for production of quality biofertilizers and also to fetch high-price. The present article emphasized to develop professional facility for testing biofertilizer (BF) and advice to improve its quality for nutrient enrichment, ma ybe a new initiative and step forward in this direction.
