30,000 mt. of organic fertilizer imported
The Agriculture Ministry says that 30,000 metric tonnes of organic potassium chloride fertilizer were imported today (13) from Lithuania.
It says the fertilizer will be immediately dispatched to agrarian development centers in Ampara, Batticaloa, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Kurunegala, Puttalam, Trincomalee and Hambantota for the Maha Season cultivations.
The government has banned the importation of chemical fertilizer in a bid to move towards organic farming.
