Amit Shah inaugurates India’s first Nano DAP plant in Gujarat

AMN / Gandhinagar,

Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah said nanotechnology will be the game changer in agriculture in the days ahead.  Addressing a large number of farmers after inaugurating the Country’s first Nano DAP plant by IFFCO near Kalol in Gandhinagar, the Minister said it is the need of the hour to adopt natural farming and reduce the use of fertilizers in agriculture without compromising the scale of the production. The Minister lauded IFFCO’s contribution in developing nano variants and coming up with successful alternatives to chemical fertilizers. 


Mr. Shah said that besides the increase in budget and loan assistance to the farmers, the government has also increased the fertilizer subsidies following the rise in fertilizers’ prices globally. The Minister said unlike the solid DAP and Urea, the liquid nano DAP will not affect the nutrients in the soil and will have zero harmful metal particles. He said the DAP plant will largely benefit the farmers of the region. 

The Nano liquid dap plant in Kalol has been set up by IFFCO at the cost of 300 crore rupees. The plant has been developed in tune with the Aatmnirbhar Bharat vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. IFCCO chairman Dilip Sanghani said while one bag of conventional DAP costs around 1300 rupees, the farmers can get one bottle of nano liquid DAP for just 600 rupees which can be carried by farmers in their pockets. The plant will lead to a significant reduction in imports of DAP and also will bring down the logistics and warehousing costs. The plant will produce 5 crore bottles of Nano dap liquid equivalent to 25 tons of DAP.

Later, the Minister also inaugurated and laid the foundation stone for various development works in the Sanand assembly area in Ahmedabad today. He also laid the foundation stone of the sports complex at SD Arts and BR Commerce College, in his native place Mansa near Gandhinagar.
