Biofertilizers are now an effective way to increase crop yield and soil health in organic farming. Because of their numerous advantages, such as their capacity for nitrogen fixation, solubilizing phosphorus, and fostering soil microbial activity, the use of biofertilizers is becoming more and more common. This paper explores the benefits of using biofertilizers and their several kinds that are available, with their possible application in organic farming. Reduced reliance on synthetic fertilizers, enhanced soil fertility, and higher crop yields are all advantages of using biofertilizers in organic farming. Moreover, by using fewer chemical fertilizers, the usage of biofertilizers can contribute to lowering the environmental pollution. The author concludes that biofertilizers could be a practical and long-term answer for organic farmers who seek to improve soil health and crop productivity.
