Shimla, November 21
Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur launched a domestic liquid boronated calcium nitrate fertiliser — a joint venture of the Himachal Pradesh State Cooperative Marketing and Consumer’s Federation (HIMFED) and Gujarat State Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd. (GSFC) — under the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan here recently.
The GSFC has introduced five products in Himachal — liquid boronated calcium nitrate, calcium nitrate, nutri plus, ammonium sulphate and boronated calcium — for farmers and horticulturists.
The Chief Minister congratulated the GSFC for introducing the fertiliser in the country, which was earlier being imported from other countries. He said the liquid fertiliser was a new concept, as it would be prepared as per the requirements of different areas of the country. — TNS
