Subsidy on Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) fertilizer is being given to farmers under the Khadim-e-Kisan Package.
A Punjab Agriculture Department spokesman said on Sunday that under this new programme of Khadim-e-Kisan Package, 5.2 million farmers would be benefited. Low rate fertiliser would help farmers to incur less expenses on agricultural commodities and apprehension of less yield of different crops due to shortage of fertilizer would be no more there.
A subsidy of Rs 150 on each bag of Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) fertilizer is being given. Unregistered farmers should get themselves registered through contacting agriculture helpline so that they could get advantage of this subsidy. The spokesman said that registered farmers should contact 080029000, 15000-0800 to seek information regarding subsidy or other matters. This subsidy is for the farmers of Punjab and every grower could get a subsidy on 20 bags of DAP.
