Nitrogen represents 78 percent of the all out supplements, phosphate for 21 percent and potash for short of what one percent. The normal N, P2O5, K2O supplement proportion between 1999/2000 and 2001/02 was 1:0.28:0.01.

Manure generation and imports

Manure necessities in the nation are met from both household generation and imports. Presently, there are 14 creation units, with a consolidated structure limit of 2 233 thousand tons of N and 239 thousand tons of P2O5. The yearly creation limits are as per the following: urea 4.3 million tons, DAP 450 thousand tons, CAN 450 thousand tons, NP mixes 305 thousand tons, SSP 180 thousand tons and for NPK mixes 100 thousand tonnes(total 5.78 million tons). The general limit use changes, however it is in every case in excess of 100 percent on account of urea.

Preceding 1980/81, the nation imported well more than 50 percent of its yearly compost prerequisites. In any case, the circumstance changed after the development of the nearby business during the 1980s.
