Helping farmers get better returns
Gorakhpur based Akshay Shrivastav (22), a Chemical Engineer and Dr Neha Srivastava(32), a research scientist at IIT BHU are contributing their bit to help farmers increase their income.
Akshay and Dr Neha have founded LCB Fertilizers Private Limited which is one among DIPPT recognised start-up by Start-up India which prepares bio-fertilizers for different crops. The firm is into production of different colonia of microorganism with proper ratio and designs a reactor which provides required climatic condition artificially. By this technique, LCB Fertilizers prepares products for the crops.
Started in 2019
Shrivastav told Chalgenius that he established the company in 2019 to work on his concept of “from the farmers, by the farmers and for the farmers”. LCB Fertilizers was founded when he was pursuing his bachelor degree and he went to IIT BHU for final year internship where his mentor, Dr. Neha Srivastava (currently Co-Founder) started working with this idea at lab scale.
He belongs to the farmer family and he had knowledge on farmers using chemical fertilizers instead of bio-fertilizers. The application of chemical fertilizers increases the production but it comes with lots of side effects on the environment, humans and soil, he says. His farming background helped him to plan for some innovative technique for helping the farmers’ fraternity.
High income to farmers
One more benefit which LCB Fertilizers provides is the high margin to the collaborators so that they can earn high profits, “The farmers get the bio-fertilizers at much cheaper price as compared to chemical fertilizers. It helps in minimizing the production cost. As the bio-fertilizers are natural, organic food also enables them to get higher returns of their crops,” said Dr Neha to Chalgenius.
The founders have presented their work to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through video conference and were topper in three States in agricultural start-ups.
