A video on the miracles of fertilizer microdosing. With the help of partners, ICRISAT developed this technique that involves the application of small, affordable quantities of fertilizer (just a bottle cap amount), either during planting or as a top dressing 3-4 weeks after emergence. Watch the video to see how farmers are using this technique and increasing their production.
