PM Modi launches 'Urea Gold', a sulphur-coated fertiliser for advanced farming
Prime Minister Modi launched a new type of urea called "Urea Gold" during his visit to Rajasthan.
An Overview of the News
Urea Gold is coated with sulphur, which can enhance soil quality and reduce farmers' expenditure.
Urea Gold, also known as Sulphur Coated Urea (SCU), is a new variety of urea that requires less field application and improves crop quality.
The launch aims to address soil fertility issues and lower input costs for farmers, making Urea Gold a more economic and qualitatively better option than the existing neem-coated urea.
Sulphur coated urea releases nitrogen slowly, and adding humic acid extends its shelf life as a fertiliser.
According to a report, using 15 kg of Urea Gold provides benefits equivalent to 20 kg of conventional urea, making it a more efficient and cost-effective option for farmers.
