Fertilizer from Bangladesh to arrive next week

KATHMANDU: Nepal will receive the first lot of chemical fertilizer it is importing from Bangladesh next week, almost six months after the procurement process began.

The government is purchasing 50,000 metric tonnes of urea from Bangladeshof which 22,500 metric tonnes have reached the Kolkata port now, as per Krishi Samagri Company Limited. Nepal will receive the fertiliser from three points: Bhairahawa, Biratnagar, and Birgunj.

The two countries had initially discussed borrowing fertiliser from Bangladesh in September last year. Later, the government decided to buy it under a government-to-government agreement.
