Due to small size and more surface area to volume ratio; seed treatment and foliar application of Nano DAP at critical growth stages enhances nutrient availability to crops.Hence, Crop yield increases due to increase in leaf chlorophyll, photosynthesis, root biomass, number of effective tillers and branches.
Increase in Farmer's Income
IFFCO Nano DAP increases farmers’ income due to reduction in input cost, higher crop yield and better quality of crop produce.
Nutritional quality of harvested food produce was found to be better in terms of protein and nutrient content.
Reduction in Chemical Fertilizer Usage
Enhanced use efficiency of one bottle (500 ml) of Nano DAP can potentially replace the phosphorus requirement met by conventional DAP by 50%.Since Nano DAP helps in meeting the nitrogen and phosphorus requirement at critical growth stages leading to judicious application of bulk chemical fertilizer
Production of Nano DAP is energy and resource friendly. The field application of Nano DAP reduces excessive application of bulk fertilizers like DAP and reduction in associated volatilization, leaching and run off losses.Precision and targeted application of Nano DAP to crops therefore leads to agriculture sustainability and safety of the environment by reducing soil, air and water pollution.
Easy to Store & Transport
Nano DAP is required in small quantity Vis a Vis bulky phosphatic fertilizers like DAP. This has significant impact on logistics and warehousing of the fertilizers. Farmers can physically carry bottles of Nano DAP easily in comparison to bulky phosphatic fertilizers
