Launches ‘Croptek’ under its flagship brand Mahadhan

Smartchem Technologies Limited (STL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corporation Limited (DFPCL), today announced the formal launch of its fertilizer – ‘Croptek’ for onion growers under its flagship brand Mahadhan.

STL is one of India’s leading manufacturers of Nitro-Phosphate fertiliser and Bentonite Sulphur and the market leader in the water-soluble and speciality fertiliser category.

‘Mahadhan Croptek’ is the foremost brand for onion progressive farmers who use secondary nutrients and micronutrients in Maharashtra and Karnataka. It is the first and unique crop-specific crop nutrition solution having essential primary, secondary and micronutrients required by the onion crop, the company claimed.

“Due to intensive cultivation practices post green revolution, year after year the deficiency of primary, secondary and micronutrients have grown many folds, making the soils non-sustainable. The situation calls for a scientific approach and sincere efforts to change it for the better. STL did several surveys to understand this issue of low yield due to older technology and low uptake of nutrients and came out with a very innovative approach to address it” the company said in a press note.

‘Mahadhan Croptek’ refers to the innovative ‘single granule complete solution’ technology being introduced by Mahadhan in India with Mahadhan’s Nutrient Unlock Technology which unlocks nutrients from single granules of Mahadhan Croptek and improves their uptake into the onion crop.

Announcing the launch Mahesh Girdhar, President – Agri-Business, STL said, “Due to highly imbalanced and non-judicious use of chemical fertilizers and continuous deterioration of soil health, now there is an urgent need to develop and implement solutions and practices which are sustainable and can bring balance in macro and micronutrients usage, improve nutrient use efficiency, and conserve the soil health”
