50 kg urea bag will now be made from a bottle, IFFCO's Gujarat Research Center makes the world's first nano urea liquid

The Nano Biotechnology Research Center of Indian Farmers Fertilizer Co-operative Limited (IFFCO) at Kalol in Gujarat has developed the world's first nano urea liquid. According to the company, nano urea has been found to be effective and efficient for liquid plant nutrition. It increases productivity with good nutritional quality. It will significantly reduce global warming with an impact on climate change and sustainable development with a very positive impact on groundwater quality.

The company said IFFCO Nano Urea Liquid is reasonable for farmers and will be useful in increasing their income. A 500 ml bottle of IFFCO Nano Urea Liquid will replace at least one bag of conventional urea, thus reducing farmers' input costs. Nano urea liquid is smaller in size and will also reduce logistics and warehousing costs. The company has announced the price of 500 ml bottle of Nano Urea for farmers at Rs. 240, which is 10 percent cheaper than a traditional urea bag.

About 11,000 farmer field trials were conducted on more than 94 crops across India to test the effectiveness of IFFCO Nano Urea Liquid. The trials conducted on 94 crops across the country recently have seen an average increase of 8 per cent in yield. IFFCO Nano Urea Liquid has been developed to replace conventional urea and can reduce that requirement by at least 50 percent.

According to IFFCO, the use of nano urea liquid by farmers will accelerate a balanced nutrition program and reduce excessive use of urea in the soil. Excessive use of urea harms environmental pollution, soil health and makes plants more susceptible to disease and pest infestation as well as delays in crop growth and loss in production. Nano urea liquid makes the crop strong, healthy and protects it from other effects.
