The Inspiration behind the Initiation
Biotech is an upcoming field. What we have explored so far is only the tip of the iceberg and a lot more to be known in all segments of life science. Anything that you name right from the recycling of plastic till remediation of soil is only possible through microbes and biotechnology, and this is the only option left out with us in future for all walks of the life. This fascinating science inspired Dr.Dhananjay Naik to make career in this domain.
Role of Biotech in the Enhancement of Living
Biotech plays an effective role in different industry verticals like food, agriculture, soil remediation, oil industry, waste management, medicine and therapeutics, biochips, human medicine and diagnostics and more. It mainly works for the betterment of human life, an extension of life span, quality of living, food, agriculture production, soil health, etc.
DSCIGN BIOSYS has a close association with Indian Agriculture, soil health, farmers’ lifestyle, farmers’ lively hood and finally contribution to Indian farming in a positive way. It has innovated technology, protocols, products for several problems in farming that are faced by farmers on a daily basis. One such example is soil-borne diseases and soil salinity (soil health) which are being addressed by our premier product called soil recharge.
Discoveries Done by the Company
“Discoveries on right time in the right segment and domain fetched us today where we are and what we are, we understood the complexity and problem of the soil,” Dr.Dhananjay Naik proclaimed.
