For achieving desired growth in general, plants need sunlight, water and minerals and there are only a few soils on earth which have a sufficient content and availability of plant nutrients to achieve high yields over a longer period without fertilization. Moreover, fertilizer also compensates the nutrient loss by harvest.

Fertilizers are a key component in the growth of India’s agriculture sector, which accounts for about a seventh of the country’s GDP. Therefore it is only in keeping with the importance of the sector that India is the world’s second-largest consumer of fertilizers, (China is the first), and the world’s third-largest producer.
