Acute shortage of neem

May 20: Early this year, Minister of State for Chemicals and Fertilizers Rao Inderjit Singh told Parliament that the “entire quantity of indigenously produced urea and imported urea is being neem coated” since 2015. His claim highlights the success of a landmark reform in ferti liser policy that makes it mandatory for manufacturers and importers to spray neem seed oil over urea before releasing it to farmers.
8But a back-of-the-envelope calculation suggests that either the government's claims are far-fetched or manufactures are using spurious oil. The country, which hosts the maximum neem trees, faces an acute shortage of neem oil, to the tune of 85 per cent.
8Whispers in the corri dors of power have it that the government may soon resort to import of neem oil from China and Myanmar to make New Urea Policy-2015 a success.
