Nano Quest Quiz

The quiz will aim to spread awareness and test citizens’ knowledge about the benefits, usage, and production of Nano urea. Based on preliminary experiment trials conducted in several ICAR research institutes and state agricultural universities on various crops such as paddy, wheat, mustard, maize, tomato, cabbage, cucumber, capsicum, onion, and so on, nano nitrogen (Nano Urea) developed by IFFCO has been provisionally included in Fertilizer Control Order (FCO) 1985. Nano-urea sprays on different crops gave comparable yields to those obtained under fully recommended doses of fertilizers, with savings on top-dressed nitrogen.

Nano Fertilizers hold great promise for application in plant nutrition because of their size-dependent qualities, high surface-to-volume ratio, and unique optical properties. Nano Fertilizer releases plant nutrients in a controlled manner, contributing to higher nutrient use efficiency.

Indian Farmers Fertilizer Cooperative Limited (IFFCO) has set up the world’s first manufacturing facility with a production capacity of 1,50,000 bottles per day (500-ml size) of Nano Urea (liquid) fertilizers at its Kalol unit in Gujarat, and commercial production has commenced w.e.f. August 1, 2021.

The quiz is being organized by Department of Chemical and Fertilizers to educate people on the benefits of Nano Urea Technology.
