A youth from Deraniyagala is manufacturing organic fertilizer going in line with the government's policy to get rid of chemical fertilizer.

Sabaragamuwa Province Governor Tikiri Kobbekaduwa and State Minister Kanaka Herath inspected the youth, Dinushka Gunasekera’s project and assured him that he will be provided every assistance possible from the Government to increase his production.

Dinushka has employed some young men and collects leaves, dung, refuse from Deraniyagala and suburbs. He uses these together with Giniseeriya, Walsuriyakantha, Maana and other types of grass and refuse to manufacture organic fertilizer. He said that his product is based on regulatory lab reports. He has invested about Rs. 7 million in this project and issues to market 100 MT of fertilizer monthly. It will be increased to 300 MT soon, he said.

He has rented the land for this purpose. Dinushka said that he will own a land before long in this regard.
