The farmers complain that there is a fertilizer shortage throughout the country. 

They are also complaining that certain fertilizer merchants have hidden their stocks and are selling them at higher than standard government set prices. 

The farmers reported that this unscrupulous activity is being exercised by merchants in Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa districts.

When our news team contacted the minister of Agriculture Duminda Dissanayake, he made clear that the complaint about the shortage is not true.   

He said however legal action will be taken against merchants selling stocks at exorbitant prices.
