The fertiliser industry’s performance improved on normal monsoons and improved reservoir levels, higher coverage under assured irrigation, remunerative crop prices, export focus, favourable Government policies including fertiliser subsidy, record procurement under MSP, and push towards new products and technologies.
However, even under favourable conditions, the fertiliser availability during the year was impacted by the elevated costs of manufactured and imported products, conflicting demand from key fertiliser consuming markets, supply challenges from the major sources and low opening stock due to consecutive years of normal monsoons resulted in lower opening stocks. The Government’s proactive approach and close coordination with the industry ensured its timely access to the farmers.
