This year Kanyakumari district gets a good rain fall and the farmers are very happy due to the adequate supply of water to all dams. Already, the farmers have started their hectic task of cultivation. In this situation, there is a heavy shortage of Urea and so they are forced to buy the fertilizers from the private owners for very high prizes. As they are unable to get fertilizers from the Agricultural co-operative societies, they are highly worried.
In the meanwhile, Mr. Kalai selvan, one of the agricultural officials informed proper measures have been taken for the supply of Urea to the farmers so as to remove the difficulties of the farmers of this district. Accordingly, 710 tons of urea has been dispatched through the Railways from Surratt. An official informed the fact that the dispatched Urea will be taken to the Errulappapuram Agricultural godown from there it will be distributed to the farmers through co-operative societies.
