Farmers to get fertilizers on reduced rates

Friday, 11 June 2021 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Thanks to the Chhattisgarh government's drive to reduce agricultural cost, fertilizers are now being provided to farmers at reduced rates in Kharif 2021 through cooperative societies.

The government has also decided to refund the difference between the old and new rates to the farmers who have already purchased the fertilizers from the committees.

After the new decision, farmers will get DAP at Rs 1,200 instead of Rs 1,800-1,950, NPK 12:32:16 for Rs 1,185 instead of Rs 1,747, SSP powder for Rs 340 instead of Rs 375, SSP granular at Rs 370 instead of Rs 406 and Zinc SSP power for Rs 355 instead of Rs 391. Lakhs of farmers will benefit by this decision, an official communication said on Thursday.
