Our Proud Customers

Nano Micro Nutrients and Amino Acids even though they were applied in very little quantity were absorbed very efficiently. They helped in various metabolic activities in the plant and the result came in the form of better production. It can be concluded that the product is very effective in increasing both the yield and also the yield of bigger sized tubers in the Lady Rosetta variety
Working with Firefly we realized that NANO Bio Growth Enhancer had a significant impact on the growth of plants when used along with fertilizer. With this, plants can be delivered to the farmer 15 days early in comparison with the present practice without NANO spray
