Centre approves new Nano 'game changer' fertiliser
New Delhi, March 4: The IFFCO fertiliser cooperative announced on Saturday that the Government of India has approved the sale of its IFFCO Nano DAP fertiliser, which will be a game changer for Indian farmers.
"IFFCO will manufacture Nano DAP fertilizer which is a game changer for Indian agriculture and economy. It will cost between Rs 600-700 much cheaper than the conventional DAP," said IFFCO Chief Dr US Awasthi.
"It's again a giant step towards Attmanirbhar Bharat and Attmanirbhar Krishi. It is also a way forward for Sahkar Se Samriddhi," he said on Twitter.
Nano DAP LIQUID is a novel foliar formulation that provides crops with nano Nitrogen (8.0%) and Phosphorus (16.0%).
It can be used on all crops as a Seed Primer, Growth Enhancer, Productivity Booster, and Quality Booster. Under ideal conditions, the efficiency of Nano DAP use is greater than 90%.
The use of nano DAP reduces the need for conventional DAP and other phosphatic fertilisers, lowering farmers' input costs as well as pollution of the soil, air, and water.
Its advantages include increased seed germination and root development, as well as lower fertiliser costs and increased farmer income.
