More than 5,000 tonnes of domestically produced fertilizer will be sold to the rice farmers in the storm-affected areas of Rakhine state at a lower rate, said U Tun Myint, Director of Rakhine State Department of Agriculture.
Farmers planting seed production plots and model plots in Sittway, Rathedaung, Ponnagyun, Pauktaw, MraukU, Kyauktaw, Maungtaw and Buthidaung townships will get the fertilizer at the affordable price.
“Fertilizers will be sold at a low price for the storm-affected farmers in Rakhine State. The type of fertilizer that will be sold is urea fertilizer produced by Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise, and more than five thousand tonnes will be sold. We are cooperating with the state government to ensure that the fertilizer bags reach the farmers in time,” U Tun Myint highlighted.
Currently, rice farmers in Rakhine state are buying fertilizer at a price of up to K150,000 per bag.
