Commenting on the controversy over stopping the importation of chemical fertilizers, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said it was not a hasty decision.

Prior to the implementation of the said decision, stocks of fertilizer required for the forthcoming season had been imported. Already 300,000 metric tons of fertilizer required for 1 and 1/2 million hectares of cultivated land has been distributed,” he said.

At the same time about 8,000 metric tons of organic fertilizer has been distributed. The Government guarantees that all organic fertilizer required for farming will be provided for the forthcoming Maha Season,” the President underlined.”We should not take back the step which was taken based on the constructive reasons that are beneficial to the country,” he added.
