Soil Testing Kit (Dharti ka Doctor)

Indian soils suffer from widespread multi-nutrient deficiencies. The soil testing service is not adequate to cater to the needs of large number of farm holdings. Farmers often apply fertilizers without any scientific recommendations. The increase in cost of production lowers farm profits and leads to soil health deterioration. Hence, Patanjali Organic Research Institute (PORI) has developed a rapid, portable and low cost soil testing kit “Dharti ka Doctor” (DKD kit). With this, we take resolution for “Prosperous Farmer Happy Country, Farmers Double Income and Quadruple Country’s Progress”.
