Paddy farmers to receive free TSP fertiliser for Maha season through USAID and FAO | Sri Lanka News

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), with funding through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), will distribute 36,000 metric tonnes of Triple Super Phosphate (TSP) fertiliser to all paddy farmers in Sri Lanka through the Ministry of Agriculture. 

The amount of TSP provided per farmer will be determined based on the area they cultivated in the 2022/2023 Maha cultivation season, a media statement issued by FAO said.

The distribution list along with the land extent cultivated during this Maha season used to determine the amount of TSP fertiliser allocated per farmer has been published and displayed at all Agrarian Service Centres of the Department of Agrarian Development. 

FAO invites all eligible paddy farmers to visit their respective Agrarian Service Centre and ensure their details have been incorporated. 

The distribution lists will be displayed until 5 January 2023, and the date of fertiliser distribution will be shared through the Agrarian Service Centres.
