‘Attempt to create agrochemical shortage’
Some of the companies that are involved in importing agrochemicals
are planning to create a shortage of agrochemicals in the market to
instigate farmers against the ban imposed by the government, said Sri
Lanka Green Movement Project Manager Bandu Ranga Kariyawasam at a press
He said only nine brand names out of around 1,003 registered have
been turned down due to the detection of arsenic and mercury in their
products and all others are free to be imported.
