Dr Mandaviya also said that it is an alternate fertiliser. We for the years, used urea and DAP to increase the productivity. When we use urea, only 35% Nitrogen (Urea) gets used by the crop and the unused affects soil. yesterday, the productivity of the soil is declining and crop production is saturated, it was essential to go to alternate fertilisers.

He also commended PM’s role during COVID, the prices of fertilisers increased and one Urea bag touched Rs 4000 mark but PM ensured that the price of fertilizers is not increased and he said that increase the subsidy but the burden of increased prices should not come on our farmers.

Dr Mandaviya advised farmers to use Nano urea. He said that one farmer listens to the advice of another farmer well. When one farmer uses nano urea in his field and finds that the production is increased, soil also not getting affected and cost too gets decreased, he should advise others to use nano urea.
