To save the rapidly increasing world population from food crisis, agriculturists are moving towards intensive cultivation with inorganic fertilizers for more crop yield. But this is the high time to be concerned about the soil; the ultimate medium for large scale plant growth, nutrition of population as well as the better socio-economic condition of the nation. As the solution of ever growing chemical pollution, agriculturists, environmentalists, policy makers, stake holders, other relevant government bodies – all are now standing in the same platform and promoting organic foods. Biofertilizer is one of the most promising options to go for sustainable agriculture. Although there are quiet a large number of advantages, some agri-based countries are still not adopting the technology unanimously, Bangladesh is one of them. The reasons for not accepting biofertilizers en bloc, solutions, potentials of biofertilizer market in Bangladesh and other important ways for educating field level workers about the soil health, secured social life and stronger economic status are recommended in this article.
