Private sector to handle fertiliser supply?


The attention of the Government has been drawn towards the handing over the supply of fertiliser to the private sector, after intervening to halt the importation of fertiliser following the completion of the 2022/23 Maha Season, Ceylon Today reliably learns.

Internal sources from the Ministry of Agriculture stated that till the end of the Maha Season the Government will intervene to supply fertiliser stocks to farmers and that afterwards they will hand over that task to the private sector. According to the Ministry, the supply of fertilizer to the impending Yala Season will probably be undertaken by the private sector.
