The farmers will be able to purchase chemical fertilizers or organic fertilizers based on their preference.

The government has the required amount of MOP fertilizer (Bandi fertilizer) and urea fertilizer for now. Meanwhile, mud fertilizer, which is the primary fertilizer, is to be supplied by the private sector.
