A hundredweight of urea Rs. 20,000: Former Agriculture Director

The farming community has severely been troubled due to the soared prices of fertiliser, said former Director of Agriculture K.B. Gunaratne. As of now, the price of a bag of urea has surged up to Rs. 20,000, he revealed.

This is mainly due to the importation of fertiliser at a time when the price of fertiliser in the world market has gone up, the former Agriculture Director noted speaking to a briefing held in Kandy today.

He went on saying that this situation should be changed with the government’s intervention and that the farmers who are vulnerable should be given the opportunity to purchase fertiliser at a concessionary price.
