Sugarcane Mud = 2.5 million tons
Organic Nutrients available = 3.96 million tons (including nitrogen, phosphorous, potash and micro-nutrient)

If added from other sources like blood (availability = 39.6 million tons), waste water, industrial cotton waste and forest waste, etc. the availability of organic nutrients will 10 times more than what we are using at present (3.68 million tons of total nutrients ) in the form of chemical fertilizers.
