Nano urea (liquid) contain 4% N as encapsulated nitrogen analogues or forms embedded on an organic matrix. It has small size (20-50 nm). This means that it has more surface area and number of particles per unit area than conventional urea.
Independently, nano urea has been tested and certified with bio- efficacy, biosafety- toxicity and environment suitability by NABL-accredited and GLP certified laboratories.
Time & Method of Application
Mix 2-4 ml of Nano urea (4 % N) in one Litre of water and spray on crop leaves at its active growth stages. For best results apply 2 foliar sprays: 1st spray: At active tillering/branching stage (30-35 Days after germination or 20-25 Days after transplanting); 2nd spray: 20-25 days after 1st spray or before flowering in the crop.
