India is a poor and populous nation, poised to become the world’s most populated country in 2023.
A burgeoning population drives a continual increase in demand for food and therefore, a proportionate increase in demand for fertilisers.
India is the world’s 2nd largest consumer of fertilisersand meets this demand by being the 2nd largest producer. However, we still rely heavily on imports being the 2nd largest importer of fertilisers.
Land, being a finite resource and agricultural land being lost to increased urbanisation calls for a coordinated effort to ensure perpetual food security and allay any fears of food scarcity.
Therefore, there is increasing pressure to derive higher crop yields from a decreasing quantum of agricultural land and also reduce overdependence on imports, all in a sustainable manner. This is where Silverline comes in.
