Study of Indian and Ukrainian legal frameworks regulating biofertilizers and biocontrol agents in reference to Canadian microbial products - year 2

This research aims at primarily analysing the legal frameworks regulating biofertilizers and biopesticides (also known as ‘biologicals’) in India and Ukraine. After studying and analysing the legal frameworks, and barriers in registration procedures for R&D, trial, transfer, trade, transport and storage of new molecules and microbial strains of agro-biologicals, a draft of alternative regulations will be suggested for biofertilizers and biocontrol agents being imported or manufactured in India and Ukraine. Simultaneously, under this research project, assessment of the effectiveness of biofertilizer/ biopesticide quality monitoring systems adopted by manufacturers, regulatory agencies and user farmers under given regulations and standards is to be done in both India and Ukraine.
