Abstract:

The role of fertilisers is crucial in the context of attempts to double the farmers' income. The traditional fertilisers, that helped our country to achieve green revolution, are facing crtiticisms in the recent years due to its negetive effects on soil health. The changing fertiliser subsidy policies, also have played a role in making the soil nutrient balance worse. In the present context, correcting the imbalance in the soil nutrients and improving the soil health is utmost important. Several policies are being implemented by the government for this, and one major way to achive this is through the use of speciality ferilisers. An attempt is made here to present the importance and usage status of speciality fertilisers in India and the role of institutions for promoting it.
