C’garh facing shortage of chemical fertilizers

Saturday, 11 June 2022 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Ahead of monsoon, the supply of chemical       fertilizers in quantity less than what was demanded has led to a shortage in Chhattisgarh for the current Kharif crop season 2022.

An official communication on Friday said the Chhattisgarh government had been making all possible efforts to meet the demand of farmers.

A demand of 13.70 lakh tonnes of chemical fertilizers had been approved by the Union government which directly monitors supply from manufacturing units, the communication said.

“Only 30 percent of NPK, 39 percent of DAP and 35 percent of Potash have been supplied. The state              government was in regular contact of the fertilizer      companies and Railways for availability of racks,” it said.

Only 67 percent of Urea was available in the state out of the approved quota, it added.   

Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel had earlier urged the farmers to give up       dependency on chemical   fertilizers. Instead,               vermicompost or super  compost manures could be used in its place.
