Using the Biofit Products: Mr. Gaikwad used the organic products of Biofit for his 1.5 acres of Guava orchards as advised by Netsurf Network. He used Biofit Stimrich & Wrap up at the initial planting stage so the plants rooted very well. At the vegetative stage, when the plants had 3-5 leaves he sprayed Biofit Stimrich, Bio-99 and SHET products in every 20-25 days for about 6-7 times. It really helped the plants to grow further to the budding stage.
