The state of Bihar needs to move away from chemical fertilizers to save money, livelihoods, health, ecology and to sustain farming in the state, according to a Greenpeace India report, launched in March 2013. The study revealed that around 70% of the nitrogen chemical fertilizer applied to Bihar farms might be lost, with both monetary and environmental impacts. These nitrogen fertilizers contaminate drinking water and might cause serious health impacts such as blue-baby syndrome (methemoglobinemia) and cancer.
