Farmers urged to use more organic fertilizer


Senior Minister Rathnasiri Wickramanayaka, Parliamentarian Vidura Wickramanayaka and Councillor Kithsiri Kahatapitiya at the Vap Magul festival.

The country needs to be self-sufficient and this cannot be done with unproductive lands. Farmers should use organic fertilizer more and avoid chemical fertilizer as much as possible, said Senior Vice Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, Good Governance and Infrastructure Senior Minister Rathnasiri Wickramanayaka.

He was addressing the Vap Magul festival held recently at Talagala, Meepagala.

Minister Wickramanayaka said, "this is the time we have to join and work hard on behalf of our country to make it self-sufficient."

"Doing away with chemical fertilizer and using compost maybe controversial, but this needs to be done," he said. A ceremony was also held to donate fertilizer, egg-seed sacks and agro-equipment to farmers.

Kalutara District Parliamentarian Vidura Wickramanayaka, Western Provincial Council Member Kithsiri Kahatapitiya, Horana Pradeshiya Sabha Vice Chairman Ashoka Ranathunga and a large crowd of students and residents participated.
