The State-run No 4 Fertilizer Factory (Myaungtaga) and No 5 Fertilizer Factory (Kangyidaunt) that suspended operations for three months have now resumed as usual and will produce urea fertilizer for farmers, according to the Ministry of Energy.
Two factories were suspended from March to May and resumed operations starting on 13 July, according to the statement of the ministry.
They will produce 300 tonnes of urea fertilizers per day, respectively. A total of 600 tonnes of fertilizers will be sold to farmers by the Ministry of Cooperatives and Rural Development and the Myanmar Rice Federation (MRF) through the MRF network.
The fertilizer distribution leading committee imported 75,000 tonnes of urea fertilizers for the first time in June and distributed them to 291 shops in 139 townships of 11 regions/states under the full payment system.
The government imports 98 per cent of fertilizers for local consumption and the price of fertilizer ranges between K92,000 and K95,000 per bag in Yangon, farmers said. — TWA/GNLM
