Glyphosate import restrictions relaxed

The Cabinet has given approval to relax the restrictions imposed on glyphosate imports.

Accordingly, glyphosate will be allowed to be imported under complete supervision.

President Ranil Wickremesinghe has presented the cabinet paper after considering a number of complaints received from farmers.

Earlier, the government allowed the import of glyphosate only for tea cultivation.
