Farmers may have to shift towards Natural Fertilizer to avail Govt. Subsidy

The central government has proposed a new move to control the harmful effect of chemical fertilizers on consumers. The draft of which has already been prepared.

  • It is “mandatory” for all the farmers who buy urea  to also buy natural fertilizer in order to avail government subsidies.
  • The central government proposed a plan where to avail subsidy on chemical fertilizer, farmers compulsorily have to buy one bag of natural fertilizer with every two bags of urea.
  • This move is expected to help the farmers opt for organic farming and lower the usage of urea because extreme use of the harmful urea affects soil fertility heavily, destroys quality of crop, reduces crops immunity as well as paves way for groundwater pollution.
