i) The only solution for maintain and restore the fertility of the soil which has become unfertile due to excessive or improper use of the chemical fertilizers is application of bio and organic fertilizers. The main advantages of organic and bio fertilizers in comparison to synthetic fertilizers are:
• Organic fertilizers provide readily available plant nutrients in a concentrated form and don’t have any significant effect on the physical properties of the soil.
• Play an important role in improvement of physical, physico-chemical and biological soil properties
• Products obtained by organic farming are free from residual effects, healthier for human and animal consumption and safe for health.
• Organic fertilizers maintain the fertility of the soil and continuous use of chemical fertilizer may cause of unproductivity of soil.
• Organic farming is not only expected to increase the income of the farmers but also helps in moving towards sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly and healthy food.
ii) Cow Dung Compost (CDC) has emerged as an alternative carrier of NPK Bio-fertilizer especially in the Indian context with a large number of livestock. Building upon this resource has many benefits namely (a) CDC has a texture comparable to soil; (b) strains of bio fertilizers embedded in CDC take lesser time to migrate to soil as compared to strains embedded in lignite/peat/ charcoal; (c) Organic composites in CDC have higher heat resistance capacity and farmers can store bio-fertilizers in room temperatures. Further, the company identified gamma sterilization of CDC by applying electromagnetic radiation emitted from radionuclides as a low cost, less time consuming and pollution-free method. Thus, the company undertook development of gamma radiation sterilized CDC as an alternative carrier of NPK Bio-fertilizer

9. Other Activities
a. Kiran Karmasanchar Prakalpa (কিরণ কর্মসঞ্চার প্রকল্প)
Self-employment and wealth generation for rural people by converting unutilized rural biodegradable waste like cow dung, the unlimited source and evenly distributed on earth to cow dung compost, utilized as raw material for our production.
b. Kiran Tailabiz Sanrakshan Prakalpa (কিরণ তৈলবীজ সংরক্ষণ প্রকল্প)
The company developed a process for preservation of oilseeds for 9-12 months in metal bin in collaboration with Save Grain Campaign under Dept. of Food, GOI and IIT, Kharagpur without any damage. By application of this technique the farmers can save their grain from damage and rural unemployed youth can self-employed by this project.
c. Kiran Suddha Paribesh Prakalpa

d. Rural Development by Mixed Organic Farming
Keeping all the problems of West Bengal’s farmers in mind, MSV laboratories Pvt. Ltd. has introduced a new project called as Bio-Zone. Bio-Zone is a simple project of MSV laboratories Pvt. Ltd in which the farmers of a village or land holders will create a co-operative society. Under the rules and regulations of this society, the farmers will undergo mixed farming (cultivation of vegetables, fruits, fisheries etc.) with the application of organic and biological manures/fertilizers in place of chemical fertilizers for providing essential nutrients to the proper growth of the crops. And store the all the agriculture produce jointly in a safe storing unit.
