Farmers to get fertilizers from the committees on reduced rates this year

Raipur: Under the State Government’s drive to reduce agricultural cost in Chhattisgarh and on instructions of Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel, fertilizers are now being made available to the farmers at reduced rates in Kharif 2021, through cooperative societies. State Government has also decided to refund the difference about between old rates and new rates to the farmers who have already purchased the fertilizers from the committees.

After this new decision of the state government, the fertilizers payable to the farmers through societies per sack has been drastically reduced. Now farmers will get DAP at Rs 1200 instead of Rs 1800-1950, NPK 12:32:16 for Rs 1185 instead of Rs 1747, SSP powder for Rs 340 instead of Rs 375, SSP granular at Rs 370 instead of Rs 406 and Zinc SSP power will be available for Rs 355 instead of Rs 391.  Lakhs of farmers of the state will be benefited by this decision to reduce rates of fertilizers.
