Chandigarh, October 18

With the state staring at an acute shortage of diammonium phosphate (DAP), Agriculture Minister Randeep Singh Nabha is rushing to meet the Union Fertiliser Minister on Tuesday.

With the state receiving less than 20 per cent of the DAP stocks allocated for Punjab in October, the state government anticipates that the shortage could lead to farmers’ unrest.

“There is less availability - 33,000 MT against the allocation of 1.97 lakh metric tonnes - for this month. The farmers require DAP immediately. I have sought time from the Fertiliser Minister tomorrow,” Nabha said. — TNS
