News Synopsis

From the past few years, there has been a number of debates and discussions to propose and implement policies, in the agriculture sector in a bid to make farmers’ lives better and to enhance the agriculture output of the country. Considering this, the Government of India announced several reforms and policies in the agriculture sector in the recently announced Union Budget. Now the Union government has come up with a new law to limit the distribution, price, and quality of the fertilizers. According to this new law, the maximum selling price of the fertilizers will be fixed. The government will also control and regulate the distribution of fertilizers to avoid illegal hoarding of fertilizers by the distributors. The law also proposes that government will encourage farmers to gradually shift towards more sustainable alternatives such as bio-fertilizers, bio-stimulates, nano-fertilizers, and organic fertilizers.
