OPPORTUNITIES & THREATS

Government of India introduced Food Security Bill, which ensures providing Food at concessional rate to 840 Million People of India. To implement the same huge quantity of Food Grain is required. Application of proper dose of Chemical Fertilizer & water will ensure such huge production requirement.

This price rise may discourage the farmer to purchase proper dose of fertilizer, from within his limited available means.
