Farmers are requesting the authorities to take immediate action to compensate their crops that were destroyed due to lack of fertilizer.

However, Minister of State for Agriculture Shasheendra Rajapaksa stated that compensation will be paid to farmers only after strict monitoring of any deficiencies in the cultivation of organic fertilizers.

Farmers who used to cultivate paddy during the Maha season in the hope that the government would provide the necessary fertilizer for paddy cultivation are now in a difficult situation.

Due to the untimely application of fertilizer, there is a risk of yellowing and destruction of paddy trees.

Farmers are urging the authorities to take immediate action to provide adequate compensation for the damage done to their crops.
