7 Fertilizers


9 Sales vis-a-vis Requirement of P&K Fertilizers up to August in Kharif 2013
Product Total Requirement up to August in Kharif (In ‘000 MT) * Cumulative Availability as on (In ‘000 MT) * Cumulative Sales as on % Sales(% Change over previous year) DAP 41%(-22%) MOP 869.19 52% (+4%) NPK 53% (-22%) Sales is 50% or less of projected requirement

10 Sales vis-a-vis Requirement of DAP up to August in Kharif 2013
State Requirement up to August in Kharif (In ‘000 MT) * Cumulative Availability as on (In ‘000 MT) * Cumulative Sales as on % Sales Maharashtra 796.10 332.64 227.26 28% Andhra Pradesh 600.00 272.57 225.89 37% West Bengal 216.00 68.21 50.27 23% Jharkhand 44.50 18.78 10.72 24% Sales are only one fourth of projected requirements.

11 Sales vis-a-vis Requirement of MOP up to August 2013
State Total Requirement up to August in Kharif (In ‘000 MT) * Cumulative Availability as on (In ‘000 MT) * Cumulative Sales as on % Sales Andhra Pradesh 225.00 110.84 95.47 42% Tamil Nadu 159.00 88.58 84.44 52% Kerala 85.00 41.24 40.23 47% Madhya Pradesh 81.00 42.62 22.98 28% Haryana 20.00 9.68 9.20 46% Rajasthan 8.11 0.00 0% MOP Sales are less than 50% of projected requirements

12 Phosphorous ‘P’ Nutrient
Promote use of Phosphorous solublizing bio-fertilizers (PSB) Current production of bio-fertilizers as per recommended dose of bio-fertilizers (kg/hectare) can cover only 10% of total gross cropped area of our country. Convert 5% of DAP demand into SSP demand as SSP is indigenously produced and cheaper fertilizer compared to DAP. In Nutrient value , it provides extra value for Ca and S Expedite commercialization of efficient/futuristic technology such as nano –P(CAZRI)

13 District-wise assessment of status of ‘K’ nutrient may be done
Potash ‘K’ Nutrient District-wise assessment of status of ‘K’ nutrient may be done Depending upon the status of ‘K’ nutrient, MOP may be applied Use of ‘K’ solublizing bio-fertilizers may also be promoted

14 Promotion of balanced use of fertilizers
Consumption of Urea (‘N’) in some of the states such as PUNJAB, HARYANA, Uttar Pradesh, and Andhra Pradesh etc has increased beyond the dose recommended by ICAR/SAU whereas in some of the states, it is much below the recommended dose.

15 Soil Fertility Maps Indian Institute of Soil Sciences (IISS) Bhopal has uploaded the soil fertility maps of about 152 districts on their website (

16 Status of Nitrogen(‘N’)
Kolar, Karnataka Ramnagaram, Karnataka

17 Status of Phosphorous(‘P’)
Akola, Maharashtra Nasik, Maharashtra

18 Status of Potassium (‘K’)
Khurda, Odisha Nayagarh, Odisha

19 Status of Micronutrient ’Zn’
Akola, Maharashtra Nasik, Maharashtra

20 Status of Micronutrient ’B’

21 Assessment of requirement of fertilizers for Rabi 2013-14

22 Assessment and Comparison with last 2 Rabi seasons
Product Requirement (‘000 MT) Rabi % change Urea + 4% + 5% DAP - 12% 13% MOP - 25% 25% Complex - 6% 5% SSP + 59% + 91%

23 Mechanization & Technology
Outcomes of Zonal Conference & Recommendations for Rabi 2013

24 Farm Mechanization: Key driver of productivity
Agricultural productivity has positive correlation with level of farm mechanization

25 Savings in fertilizers: 15-20%; Increase in cropping intensity: 5-20%;
Estimated contributions of improved agricultural tools and equipment in augmenting total food production Savings in seeds: 15-20%; Savings in fertilizers: 15-20%; Increase in cropping intensity: 5-20%; Increase in productivity per cent; Savings in time: 20-30%; and Reduction in labour: 20-30%;


27 12th PLAN Shift of focus from Individual Ownership to CUSTOM HIRING ;
Allow farmers to choose the implements/machinery as well as Manufacturer/model as per their choice. Promotion of use of IT Tools and application in distribution of subsidy. (Odisha Model)

28 Plant Protection Kharif season- Pests situation
Paddy Sheath Blight and leaf folder Cotton White Fly and leaf curl Virus(CLCV) Soybean Hairy caterpillar, Spodoptera ,White fly These crop pests were managed/controlled successfully and no significant economic loss was reported .

29 Preparation for Rabi CROP Pest/Disease Biopesticides
Chemical Pesticides (registered with CIB&RC) Wheat Yellow Rust Propiconazole Wheat aphid Quinalphos , Thiamethoxam Oilseeds (Mustard) Aphids Dimethoate , Malathion, Oxydemeton – methyl , Phosphamidon, Thiamethoxam etc Alternaria species Iprodione Pulses (Gram) Pod Borer Azadirachtin , Bacillus thuringiensis , Beauveria bassiana Chlorantraniliprole, Emamectin Benzoate , Ethion, Quinalphos etc gram wilt Trichoderma viride Potato Late Blight Captan, Chlorothalonil , Copper oxy chloride, Mancozeb etc

30 Issues Related to Plant Protection
1. States should recommend pesticides usage in conformity with the terms of registration to ensure efficacy against pests and safety to humans and environment. 2. States insecticides inspectors should be directed to draw samples from manufacturing units and retailers for analysis of quality. 3. Bio-pesticides and less toxic/ environment friendly pesticides may be encouraged for use.

31 4. Biocontrol agents like Trichogramma species (10 nos) , Bracon species (3 nos),Chelonus species (2 nos), Sticholotis, Chilocorus spp.  Amblysius ,Aphelinus mali, Neochetina species, Zygogramma bicolorata etc should be conserved and augmented in the laboratories.

32 Issues in Bio products 5. Bio-products being sold in market without registration and component details should be analyzed in notified laboratories. NIPHM Hyderabad has been notified along with 7 other laboratories for the purpose . 6. Some of the states are yet to initiate NABL Accreditation of State Pesticides Testing Labs. This is required for quality assurance.

33 Disposal of pesticides and their containers
Disposal of used containers should be as per the instructions given on the label. States are requested to invest in awareness campaign in this regard. Safe disposal of date expired pesticides lying in stores of the States departments. Services of TSDF may be taken for disposal of such stocks in an environmentally safe manner.

States are informed about pesticides residues status in various agricultural commodities. IPM practices and awareness campaign for responsible use of pesticides is required.
