Over the years, India has seen substantial growth in the sector. Fertilizer industry continues to contribute to increase in agricultural productivity and farmers’ income and the government will continue to support efforts. It is heartening to note that there has been serious discussion on possible reforms within the sector, both inside and outside the government.”
 
Emphasising on the importance of sustainable growth of the sector, he also added, “Environment friendly alternate fertilizer usage is the need of the hour. We assure subsidy on alternate fertilizers, micronutrient including zinc and urge the fertilizer companies and industry association to adopt both chemical and organic fertilizers to boost the agricultural output.”

Commenting on the award, Dr. Soumitra Das, Director, South Asia - Zinc Nutrient Initiative, International Zinc Association said, “Zinc has emerged as the most widespread micronutrient deficiency in soils and crops worldwide, resulting in severe yield losses and deterioration in nutritional quality. We have seen a remarkable increase of about 200% growth in consumption of zinc in fertilizers in India in the last 7-8 years, owing to joint efforts by IZA, FAI, academia and the government. With changes in policy measures and increased awareness, we can make headwinds in popularizing micronutrients in balanced fertilizer use across sectors.”
