INM microbes

Agriculture is challenged by ever increasing population, which is projected to reach 9 billion by 2050. To feed this growing population, our farmers have to increase the agricultural yields by 70 to 100%. Increasing yields by doubling the fertilizers, pesticides and water may not be the answer to this problem. By doing so, we might lose our productive lands faster with huge economic implications and further damage our water bodies, air and health.


Microbes can give apt solution to this problem! Microbes and plants are intimate partners in virtually every life process. It is now that we have realized their enormous potential, which needs to be explored together with precision farming. Thus if put to proper use, microbes offer solutions to fertilizers, pesticides and maintaining soil health. They will help us achieve the ambitious goal of doubling agricultural yields in a sustainable manner.


Kan biosys has been working with microbes for over two decades. We offer advanced microbial technology from seed to harvest. An array of selective and efficient strains of microbes are formulated, using award winning and patented processes into hi-tech products.

From Chairperson’s desk

Unique business model – Kan biosys took birth from an idea to support economical sustainable agriculture. We have over 2 decades brought out best microbial solutions through in-house research. Each product has been perfected technically and the channel is supported in all possible ways till it reaches the farmers and imparts benefit. Thus our business model is fuelled by in-house research acumen which can be translated into scalable technologies.

Strong brand building – Over the years Kan biosys has believed in creating not just technology but brands which are respected by the customers – TABA, VITORMONE, MILASTIN, SUDO are known for their technology and consistent quality.

R and D for development of product or technology – Innovation is in our DNA. Our unique SAP-RTD platform in our DSIR recognized R and D department has brought out state of art microbial products which have been formulated by award winning technologies. We are the inventors of Liquid bio-fertilizers for N,P and K supplementation. Novel methods of using microbes on seed, in rhizosphere and foliar surfaces are providing multiple benefits to the farmer. Our discovery pipe-line has potential to yield novel microbes for plant nutrition, protection and soil health management.

One stop solution for maximizing yields – Precision agriculture is the key for maximizing yields and earning sizable profits for the farmer. Soil testing is the heart of this activity. We have devised unique one-stop service to help the farmer achieve best results. Kan biosys dreams of transforming agriculture in a sustainable manner.

State of art manufacturing abilities - Our fermentation plant for producing microbial inputs uses innovative techniques and is supported by our In-house R and D department. We are the largest producer of organic – microbial fertilizers for foliar, drip and soil application in India. All products are registered at FCO. Our biopesticide plant produces microbial formulations for nematode, fungal and insect management in crops. All products are registered at CIB –RC.
Meeting compliance and going beyond it
Compliance at Kan biosys is seen as a way for reaching the best quality inputs to the farmers. Kan biosys additionally has devised its own compliance parameters which are the best to achieve quality and build up brand image. We target zero pollution norms by 99% recycling of waste.
