According to AACN Country Manager Neeraj Kumar Awasthi, employing Poly4 as a source of potassium, sulphate-sulphur, magnesium, and calcium is more efficient and effective for farmers in terms of sustainable fertiliser techniques. Poly4 is a polyhalite-based multi-nutrient and low-chloride fertiliser.
‘It is appropriate for all crops and soil types.’ This naturally occurring Poly4 can be used as a low-impact multi-nutrient fertiliser. This would make it easier for farmers to develop balanced, lower carbon, and soil-enhancing fertiliser blends,’ he said in a statement issued on Sunday.
The two-day meeting would focus on nitrogen management in horticultural crops, cereal-based cropping systems, industrial and cash crops, and so on.
