World’s First Nano DAP Liquid Fertiliser dedicated to the Nation by the Hon’ble Minister of Home Affairs & Cooperation: World’s first Nano DAP Liquid Fertiliser by IFFCO was introduced today by Hon’ble Minister of Home Affairs & Cooperation Shri Amit Shah at IFFCO Sadan, New Delhi in an effort to provide farmers the means to boost productivity & help increase their income.
A Giant Step towards realising PM’s dream of Sahkar Se Samriddhi & Atmanirbhar Bharat. Hon’ble Minister dedicated the Nano DAP Liquid Fertiliser to the service of the Nation at a ceremony held at IFFCO, New Delhi which was watched online by millions of Farmers, Member Cooperatives societies throughout India & Abroad.
IFFCO has set up manufacturing facilities for production of Nano DAP Fertilisers at Kalol, Kandla in Gujarat and Paradeep in Orissa. Production at Kalol Plant has already started and this year 5 crore Bottles of Nano DAP Liquid equivalent 25 lakh Ton of DAP will be produced. It is expected that by FY 2025-26, 18 crore bottles of Nano DAP will be produced through IFFCO’s 3 Nano DAP plants.
Nano DAP Liquid is an efficient source of Nitrogen & Phosphorus and helps in overcoming the Nitrogen & Phosphorus deficiencies in plant. The Nano Di-ammonium Phosphate (DAP) liquid fertiliser developed by the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative (IFFCO), the country’s largest fertilizer cooperative, has been notified by the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare under the Fertilizer Control Order on March 2, 2023 and a gazette notification was issued allowing IFFCO to produce Nano DAP liquid in India. It is biologically safe &Eco- friendly, fit for residue free green farming.
Speaking on the Occasion Shri Amit Shah, Hon’ble Minister of Home Affairs & Minister of Cooperation, Govt. of India, said, “Successful co-operative societies coming out of their framework for research and foraying into new fields have made it a source of inspiration for all co-operative societies today. IFFCO’s product launch of Nano DAP (Liquid) is a significant beginning to make India self-reliant in the field of Fertilizer. As the health of crores of Indians is being threatened due to chemical fertilizer laden land today, IFFCO Nano DAP (Liquid) will increase both the quality and quantity of production and also of life and make a huge contribution in increasing farmer’s income and land conservation.”
Shri Amit Shah appealed farmers to use more effective liquid Nano Urea and DAP instead of granular urea and DAP. He said that the use of granular urea damages the land as well as the crop and the health of the people. He said that farmers have the maximum capacity to accept any new changes. The effect of one bottle of 500 ml on the crop is equivalent to that of 45 kg bag of granular urea. Due to it being a liquid, the land will be minimally contaminated by chemicals. Earthworms themselves work like a fertilizer factory when they are in good quantity. He said that by using liquid DAP and liquid urea, the farmers can increase the number of earthworms in their land and move towards natural farming without reducing production and income. This will also help in conserving the land. Shri Shah said that in a country like India, where 60 percent of the population is still associated with agriculture and its related businesses, this revolutionary step will take agriculture a long way in the coming days and make India self-sufficient in the field of food production and fertilizers.”
“The total fertilizer production in the country has been 384 lakh metric tonnes. In this cooperative societies have produced 132 lakh metric tonnes. Out of 132 lakh metric tonnes of fertilizers, IFFCO alone has produced 90 lakh metric tonnes of fertilizers”, further added Shri Amit Shah.
Chairman IFFCO, Shri Dileep Sanghani said “Nano DAP Liquid has been made in line with the PM Modi’s vision of Sahkar se Samriddhi and Atmanirbhar Bharat with the aim of increasing farmer’s income and providing them with a better future.”
MD IFFCO, Dr. U S Awasthi said, “Nano DAP liquid has been found to be very effective in enhancing the nutritional quality & productivity of crop and has a huge positive impact on the environment thus resulting in significant reduction in Global Warming.”He further informed that IFFCO has been continuously working on highly Innovative New Age farming technologies and practices for the betterment of the farmers.
