Fertiliser subsidy reintroduced

A 50 kg fertiliser sack for paddy farmers can be purchased at Rs. 500 and fertiliser for other supplementary crops can be obtained at Rs. 1,500 per sack from mid night today (06), said Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake.

The minister made this statement at a press briefing currently being held at the Agriculture Ministry, adding that this proposal had received Cabinet approval.

Accordingly, the subsidiary method for fertiliser purchase has been re-introduced replacing the system of providing cash for the purchase of fertiliser.
