Mullakara Ratnakaran, agriculture minister in Thiruvananthapuram, said that for a month the state has suffered from a severe shortage of fertilizers containing phosphates and urea, which has caused prices to skyrocket.
Fertilizers and Chemicals Travancore Ltd, located in Kochi, has more than halved its production of the factomphos fertilizer because of a phosphate supply crunch, said Ratnakaran. "While the company was supposed to supply 7,600 tonnes of factomphos for June, it supplied only 3,092 tonnes," he said, adding that supplies of diammonium phosphates fertilizer have also been seriously affected. "We have so far received only 3,092 tonnes for June, but we need 18,000 tonnes for the kharif season April to September."
