Kanpur, 21 Dec (HS): Recent trials conducted by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research have highlighted the potential benefits of Nano Urea, with two top-dressing sprays alongside the recommended basal nitrogen dose resulting in a promising three to eight percent increase in crop yield. Dr. S.N. Sunil Pandey, an agricultural and meteorological scientist from Chandrashekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, shared insights with Hindusthan Samachar, emphasizing that Nano Urea usage could save up to 25-50 percent of urea in crops. Priced at Rs 225 per 500 ml bottle, IFFCO Nano Liquid Urea offers a 16 percent cost reduction compared to traditional urea, demonstrating its potential to enhance yield and reduce production costs.
Impact on MSMEs and Businesses: The adoption of Nano Urea could present significant opportunities for MSMEs involved in the production and distribution of agricultural inputs. As farmers explore cost-effective alternatives that also enhance productivity, local businesses catering to the agricultural sector may experience increased demand for nano urea products. Additionally, the use of nano urea in farming practices aligns with sustainability goals, opening avenues for eco-friendly agricultural solutions in the region and potentially boosting businesses engaged in environmentally conscious practices.
