The central government took decision to give a big push to neem coated urea in recent past. As a result of it, a neem oil coating plant has started functioning in Kandla-Gandhidham.

The plant was inaugurated yesterday at Kandla port godown number 34 by Kandla Port Trust(KPT) Chairman Ravi Parmar. The plant has been set up jointly by KPT and Rishi Shipping.

KPT has become first port to set up such plant in record time. This will boost import of fertilizers at KPT. In present fiscal year it is expected to touch 100 MMT according to Parmar.
