Gov’t sells 50kg bag of fertilizer at D700

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

In consultation with the Government of the Gambia, the National Food Security Processing and Marketing Corporation (NFSC) has announced in a media release that the newly received fertilizer has been pegged at D700 per 50kg bag at the corporation’s depots.

According to NFSC, government has subsidised the quoted price and consequently sales will be strictly to Gambian farmers.

The cooperation further informed stakeholders that it continues to receive in partial shipments, the 7,000 tonnes of fertilizer ordered for 2018.

“The fertilizer is available at all of its provincial depots throughout the country.

The corporation urges all to cooperate and ensure that the fertilizer is purchased by Gambian farmers and applied for better yields.
