Fertiliser Storage Facilities to be explored in J&K
The government has stated to set up storage facility for fertilisers to create buffer stock and ensure availability during peak season in Jammu & Kashmir. A review meeting about supply and availability of fertilisers in Jammu & Kashmir was convened by Mansukh Mandaviya, Minister of State for Shipping (Independent Charge) and Chemical & Fertilisers.
The fertiliser supplying companies will ensure timely stocking of fertilisers, mainly in the valley in view of the closure of Jammu-Srinagar National Highway during winter and inclement weather conditions. The State Agriculture Production Department officials and fertiliser supplying companies are required to adhere to the guidelines and deadlines to bring transparency in the business and ensure timely supply of quality fertilizers to the farmers.
The department is advised to actively promote use of organic/bio-fertilisers in the state, and directed them to engage with agriculture experts to identify sustainable ways for adoption of need-based technology in farm sector.
