    April 06, 2018

    Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake says that the fertilizer subsidies for the Yala cultivation seasons will be available from midnight today (6th). He stated that fertilizer for paddy will be provided at Rs 500 per 50 kg while fetiliser for other crops will be provided at Rs 1,500.

    The Government decided to bring back the previous fertilizer subsidy scheme as farmers countrywide had objected to the proposed program me to provide an allowance to purchase fertiliser.

    Government has planned to deposit cash for full market value of fertiliser to the bank accounts of farmers, starting from the next cultivation season.

    However,  the that program me was scrapped and fertilizer will now be provided at subsidized prices. Under this program me Urea, Triple superphosphate (TSP) and Murrieta of Potash (MOP) will be provided at Rs 500 per 50kg.
