It is mandatory to test soil before adding fertilizers - Harrison

Agriculture Ministry has decided to make it mandatory to test soil before adding fertilizer, Agriculture Minister P Harrison said.

The Minister said that in other countries it was mandatory to do a soil pH test before adding fertilizer. But in our country farmers used to follow the instructions given by pesticides retailers.

This situation should be changed. So the Ministry has decided to train Agriculture Research Officers on soil testing.
