India's largest fertilizer co-operative Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Limited (IFFCO) has come up with a scheme that will help farmers increase their income. It's a good news for farmers.
The company will purchase fruit of neem (nimori), usually discarded as waste, at the rate of Rs 15 a kilo. Farmers can visit any IFFCO office to sell nimori.
As the government has made it mandatory for fertiliser firms to produce neem-coated urea, the demand for neem extracts is expected to rise. The IFFCO has already planted over 1.5 lakh neem saplings.
Neem coated urea is eco-friendly, cost effective and has efficiency advantages. IFFCO also plans to process the nimori to make agro-based products like oil and fertilizers.
