There is no shortage of fertilizer in the country, says Federal Minister Bhagwanth Khuba

Bhagwanth Khuba, Minister of State for Chemical Fertilizers, addressed a press conference to dispel rumors about fertilizer shortages in the country. He called them false and unfounded and demanded that farmers not believe in rumors of fertilizer shortages.

Kuba said: “Over the last two years, the use of complex fertilizers has increased in parts of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, and Karnataka. Farmers in the state will benefit from adopting complex fertilizers. Complex fertilizers give better results than DAP, which is why the government recommends purchasing complex fertilizers instead of DAP. “

He said all rumors of the country’s upcoming fertilizer shortages in several quarters were false and unfounded. He advised farmers not to worry about collecting enough fertilizer for the next four months, as availability will be maintained with legitimate authority.

“This year, production of nano-urea has increased. Production of nano-DAP will begin next year. 220,000 tonnes of urea are available in Karnataka. 20,000 tonnes of DAP will be available during the rabbi season. Needed and produced. We took action at two factories. ”Federal ministers said that during the Monsoon season, good rainfall was seen throughout Karnataka and 785,100 hectares of land was sown. He added.

“The supply of input materials needed for sowing is properly addressed by the state. As part of the central government, arrangements have been made to supply fertilizer to the district,” he said.
