COLOMBO (News 1st); The Sri Lankan Cabinet of Minister had given the green light to establish at least one organic fertilizer manufacturing center per each Divisional Secretariat covering 29 Divisional Secretariats in Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa.

According to the Government Information Department, since the Government has already taken measures to ban the usage of chemical fertilizer for Agriculture, it is essential to prepare an appropriate programme for ensuring a sufficient supply of organic fertilizer by increasing the production of the same by the start of Maha season in the month of September.

Therefore, a project has been planned/designed to implement an organic fertilizer production project by furnishing the essential fundamental capital from the Land Reformation Commission Fund, the so manufactured organic fertilizer to be purchased by the Ministry of Agriculture and distribute among the farmers.
