Price of urea
It's a distress to the farmers. Field level agricultural officials and staff have to play the role of shock absorbers to the farmers.
The price would be gradually increased. Isn't it an abrupt result of the unadjusted prices of urea? For fiscal 2008-09, 28.50 lakh tonnes of urea has to be imported. Import cost has increased more than 7 times in the 11 years.
The neighbouring countries have adjusted the prices regularly. We have not done that and thus a crisis has been created.
