With the government trying to set up clusters of organic farms, Goa’s only bio-fertiliser unit Cosme Biotech Pvt. Ltd., is hoping for turnaround in its fortunes. The plant located in the verdant forests of Sarvona, Bicholim, is a modern production facility designed as per international standards. However it operates in isolation with few Goans aware of its existence. It is one of the few certified, genuine, bio-fertiliser units in India but plays a marginal role in boosting local agriculture.
Presently the company employees have their fingers crossed for better times. They are hoping for clientele on the home turf instead of seeking markets in other states. Being excluded from local agricultural production is a sore point for the employees who find their products finding takers in other states and working wonders.
