SSP fertilizer to be produced locally

The Cabinet of Ministers has approved the proposal made by Agriculture Minister Chamal Rajapaksa to implement a project to produce Single Super Phosphate (SSP) using the Eppawala Phosphate deposit as an alternative for Triple Phosphate fertilizer, Co-cabinet Spokesman Information and Communication Minister Dr. Bandula Gunawardena said.  

Speaking at the Cabinet Media Briefing held yesterday at the Government Information Department, Dr Gunawardena said the Government annually spends Rs 7 billion for the import of Triple Phosphate and it is expected to save more than half of it with the implementation of this project.  

According to the Minister this will be implemented as a public private partnership project.
