Organic MARGOSA: A Nitrogenous Fertilizer Enhancer (NFE)
Margosa is an organic preparation of Neem (Azadirachta indica) and Karanj (Pongamia pinnata), impregnated
with trichoderma & mycorrhizal spores alongwith biomimetic silver nanoparticles as bio stimulators. On application,
Margosa limits the leaching loss of chemical fertilizers, thus enhance their bioavailability coupled with higher Nitrogen
content in the soil (NFE). Apart from this, it also shows pesticidal, anti-nematodal, pH mordant and soil binding activities in
the agriculture fields. The surface functionalized Urea/DAP/CAN particles (with Margosa) enhance flowability, minimize
the moisture pickup, stabilize the surface, enhance appearance and modify nutrient release characteristics. Application of
Organic Margosa ranges from agro covering use: diverse food crops, cash crops, vegetables, horticultural crops, plantation,
lawns to forestry produce etc.
