14 February 2023, New Delhi: Union Minister of Chemicals and Fertilizers, Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya inaugurated the IFFCO Nano Urea Liquid Plants at Aonla and Phulpur in Uttar Pradesh.
Addressing the event, Dr. Mandaviya stated that today is an important day because Nano urea plants have been dedicated to the nation. He said that Nano Urea, in the coming times will ensure the progress of the farmers, and increase their income. In this way, it will change the future of our farmers.
Union Minister highlighted the benefits of Nano urea stating that it is the best green technology and provides a solution to pollution. It saves the soil and also increases productivity and hence is the best for the farmers. He further said that Government’s Expert Committee has given approval to Nano DAP and it will also come to replace DAP shortly. He added that Nano-DAP will immensely benefit our farmers and it will be available at half the cost of DAP.
He underlined the efforts of the government in making Nano urea available to the farmers. He also pointed out the challenges in bringing Nano urea ranging from getting approvals from various departments and convincing the farmers to tackle the conventional urea lobby.
Dr. Mandaviya also said that it is an alternate fertilizer. We for the years used urea and DAP to increase productivity. When we use urea, only 35% of Nitrogen (Urea) gets used by the crop and the unused affects the soil. Today, the productivity of the soil is declining and crop production is saturated, so it was essential to go to alternate fertilizers.
