Miklens Bio, a research and development (R&D) driven Agri Microbial Technology (AMT) product start-up headquartered in Mumbai, has set up its first manufacturing facility in Bengaluru to spur residue-free cultivation.
The facility and R&D laboratory is spread over an area of 10,000sq ft, and has an installed capacity to manufacture ten lakh litre annually.
The in-house developed research-based agri inputs to be manufactured will include plant growth enhancers, plant protection, bio-fertilisers and bio-pesticides.
Most importantly, these products are pest- and pathogen-specific and not crop-specific, thus offering farmers the choice to use only those inputs which meet their specific requirements.
With the plant starting commercial production, Miklens Bio will have the necessary edge to scale up their production to meet the demand of farmers.
These products have undergone extensive trials under lab and open field conditions. Miklens Bio has been certified as an approved input for organic agriculture by Control Union, a reputed certifying agency worldwide. In addition to this, the products have been tested in Canada for their efficacy.
