26 October 2023, Gandhinagar: Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation Amit Shah inaugurated IFFCO’s Nano DAP (Liquid) Plant at Kalol in Gandhinagar, Gujarat today.
Addressing the inauguration program as the chief guest Amit Shah said, “It is a very important day for the entire Western India including Gujarat as IFFCO’s Nano DAP (Liquid) plant has been inaugurated at Kalol in Gandhinagar district. India is the first in the world to create Nano Urea and Nano DAP. India is an agricultural country blessed with large and fertile cultivable land and climate suitable for three to four crops, a combination not to be found anywhere else in the world.”
He further said that it is the need of the hour to reduce the use of urea and move towards natural farming but at the same time, there is also a need to increase production. Shah said that Nano Urea is sprayed not on the ground but on the plants and due to this, there is a zero possibility of destruction of natural elements or the earthworms present in the soil. If all the Primary Agricultural Credit Societies (PACS) use Nano Urea and Nano DAP in partnership with IFFCO then very soon our land will move towards natural farming.
He said that IFFCO has set up pan-India plants in a very modern manner. There can be no greater example of Make in India than this. IFFCO’s Kalol unit will produce about 42 lakh bottles of green technology-based Nano DAP which will benefit the farmers. He said that 60 percent of the people in our country are dependent on agriculture for earning a living and 60 percent of the country’s land is suitable for agriculture, but for years both farmers and agriculture were ignored.
