Zuari Fertilisers & Chemicals Limited (ZFCL) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zuari Agro Chemicals Limited. The company has commissioned a 2 lakh MTPA capacity Granulated SSP plant at MIDC, Mahad, Maharashtra.
SSP or Single Super Phosphate is a fertiliser that contains phosphorus as its primary plant nutrient and Calcium and Sulphur as secondary nutrients. Being affordable, it is often billed as a poor man's fertilizer. SSP is an essential fertiliser that treats sulphur deficiency of soil and enhances agricultural yield at lower cost, particularly of sulphur-loving crops like pulses, oilseeds, onion, garlic, etc.
With an objective of improving agricultural productivity, usage of SSP fertiliser needs to be increased along with Urea, DAP and NPK fertilisers. Keeping this in mind, the company decided to set up a manufacturing facility for this fertiliser grade at a location in close vicinity of the consumption belt of Pune-Satara zone that gives it a strategic advantage over its competitors.
The addition of SSP, under the brand name Super 16, will further strengthen the Jai Kisaan product portfolio.
