Use of phosphate and potash fertilizers to raise crop yield, Hrach Berberyan

YEREVAN, March 26. / ARKA /. Use of phosphate and potash fertilizers will increase the level of crop yield and improve the quality of agricultural produces, Hrach Berberyan, the chairman of the Agrarian-Peasant Union of Armenia, said today.

Apart from nitrogen fertilizers the ministry of agriculture is expected to sell, for the first time, also phosphate and potash fertilizers to farmers at a price lower than at the market. The cost of a 50 kg sack of nitrogen fertilizer is 6000 drams and the cost of phosphate and potash fertilizers is 7000 drams.

"I think use of phosphate and potash fertilizers is extremely important as they are instrumental in ensuring adequate nutrition for plants,"  Berberyan said.

He said also that use of new fertilizers will not only have a positive impact on the output, but also contribute to improving the taste  of agricultural products.

However, Berberyan said the price of new fertilizers is too high and suggested that the government subsidizes part of the cost 

Earlier, deputy minister of agriculture Samvel Galstyan said the ministry would bring in 33,281 tons of nitrogen, 2,647 tons of phosphate and 1,618 tons of potash fertilizers this year. -0 -
