President Gotabaya Rajapaksa advised the officials to study the machinery required to produce organic fertilizer and manufacture machines that could be built locally with the assistance of the Sri Lanka Army Engineer’s Corps at state owned factories and import the rest.

The President gave these instructions at a discussion held at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday (02) with regard to the production of organic fertilizer.

Special attention was paid to the production of fertilizer at the local government level. The President also explained the need to impart technical knowledge to these institutions.

The raw material required for the production of organic fertilizer can be conveniently obtained from the rural environment itself.

The President highlighted that this would preserve the cleanliness and splendour of the village and at the same time a brand new rural economy network could be built with the assistance of the Samurdhi beneficiaries.

"Challenges may arise when implementing this programme. But in accordance with the National Policy Framework “Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour,” the right of the people to a non-toxic diet must be guaranteed to raise a healthy and efficient citizenry. Numerous elements across the globe claimed that it was impossible to defeat terrorism. A similar notion is shared by many with regard to the organic fertilizer programme as well. “Overcoming this challenge is the need of the era,” the President emphasized.

The President also stated that in order to make this programme a success, it is imperative that the farmers be provided with the required amount of organic fertilizer without shortage.

    Stop intervening in things you know nothing about and listen to people who are educated in relation to the virus, the economy, the environmental catastrophe. Leadership by spasm is never sensible.

    As I mentioned before mostly in Tamil of Isha but also help other states.of India,like panchakavia (5substance),geevaamirtham,meenamilam(make it from fish waste)for pesticides ,and how intercrops reduce the fungus and disease rather than same crops it's so interesting to watch it's all on YouTube hope our TV/media watch.and gives guidance rather than bring head. Line news without chemicals farmers.are having hard time

    Good initiative but will officials follow through.

    Nandasena, do something useful. Take your 225, harnessed like cattle and tie them up in the fields of SL. You will have enough manure (organic fertiliser) daily. Please also add yourself. One more manure maker.

    Rajapassa Friday, 04 June 2021 08:42 AM

    Nandasena get out of the family loop.then utter your simplistic views

    Pramod Friday, 04 June 2021 08:43 AM

    Sir, we have been eating poisonous food for so long. They are either covered in pesticides, fertilizer or Carbide. Often we develop sore throat, skin irritation and all kinds of allergic reactions. Any solution for this health disaster?

    So foolish
