India’s next move in fertiliser is “One Nation One Fertilizer”. Minister of Chemical and Fertilizer is discussing on the concept note of “One Nation One Fertilizer” prepared by department of fertilisers, with all veteran of fertiliser industries, urea manufacturer and FMEs.
Objective of ‘ONE NATION ONE FERTILIZER’ concept is to minimize freight subsidy and monitor ‘Real time’ movement/availability/sales of Fertilizers in a state and to stop the diversion of Urea for industrial purpose.
Fertilizer companies get the Freight subsidy from government which lead to crisscross movement and also brand-wise demand of fertilizers in the specific areas by the farmers. Government want to stop the crisscross movement and confusion among farmers for various brands, as all the urea has nitrogen content of 46%.
