Fertilizer price will not be increased despite price hike in the World Market

The Agriculture Ministry has decided to supply the fertilizer at the prevailing price despite the increase in the price of fertilizer in the World Market. Minister Mahinda Amaraweera has issued the necessary instructions in this regard to the National Fertilizer Secretariat.

The price of a metric ton of urea fertilizer in the world market has risen to 370 US Dollars. However, following a discussion held yesterday, the Minister has issued instructions to supply the fertilizer at the prevailing prices. The aim is to continuously provide fertilizer for the Yala season sans any shortage.

Accordingly a bag of urea fertilizer will be given at the prevailing price of 500 rupees for the cultivation of paddy.

It was also decided at this discussion to provide a bag of urea fertilizer for the cultivation of other crops at the rate of 1500 rupees.
