Haryana Agri Min: There will be no crisis of fertilizer in State

Thursday, 28 October 2021 | PNS | Chandigarh

Amidst the protests by farmers against the State Government over the shortage of DAP fertilizer, Haryana Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Minister, JP Dalal on Wednesday said that there will be no shortage of fertilizers in the state.

“The state will soon get six more rakes of DAP fertilizer from the Central Government. The farmers should be prepared for sowing the next crop,” Dalal said while talking to the mediapersons here.

The Minister also hit out at the opposition parties and alleged that they  created panic among the farmers and spread wrong information about the shortage of DAP fertilizers.  He said that it was opposition parties who held protests at few places in the state over the issue. It is true that at some places, long queues of farmers were witnessed to purchase the fertiliser but they will not face any problem now, he added.

A day before, long queues were witnessed as farmers waited for hours to purchase the fertiliser in Charkhi Dadri and Shahabad in Kurukshetra. Opposition parties have alleged that farmers are running from pillar to post as there is a shortage of DAP.

Earlier on Sunday, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had held a meeting to review the availability and demand of DAP.  Khattar had urged the Centre for six additional (train) rakes of the fertilisers and the Centre had agreed to it.

The Agriculture Minister urged the farmers to use organic DAP fertilizer and said that the farmers will get fair prices of crops and vegetables sown using organic DAP fertilizer.

Giving details of DAP fertilizer availability and demand, Dalal said that about 3 lakh MT of DAP fertilizer is required during the next Rabi crop 2021-22 in the state. Till date, about 1.38 lakh MT of DAP manure is available with the State Government, out of which 1.10 lakh MT of DAP fertilizer has been given to the farmers.
