Abstract

Fertilizer resources, especially phosphates and potassium are fast getting depleted. They also have poor use efficiency, burden farm economy, and pollute entire ecosystem. It was, therefore aimed to develop novel process and materials using nanotechnology. Novel process (patents applied) of nanofabrication and beneficiation of Rock Phosphate ore led to heavy-metal free phosphate-rich minerals and Zn-products. Novel P and Zn nanoproducts (patents applied) ensured supply of nutrients in plant available forms, and in conformity to environmental quality.
