Fertiliser were distributed for free among farmers in the Ampara District recently.

Each farmer received Urea, TSP and MOP from farmer organisations and Agrarian Services Centres.

Farmers can obtain free application forms for fertiliser from farmer organisations and after filling them, they should submit them to the Divisional Officer of the relevant Agrarian Services Centre. Distributing fertiliser in the previous season was delayed as some of the farmer organisations did not function. Then farmers obtained fertiliser from private sale centres at a high price.
