Rohtak, November 23
The state leadership’s claims of adequate availability of DAP in the state notwithstanding, its shortage persists in Rohtak district.
Long queues of farmers have been seen at IFFCO outlets in villages since early morning, even before the opening of the outlets. It may be pertinent to mention that DAP is particularly required at the time of the sowing of wheat, which is going on in full swing these days.
Owing to its continuous shortage, the hapless farmers are even going to other districts to get DAP. “We go to other districts to get DAP whenever we get to know that DAP is available there. At times, we have to return empty-handed,” said Ravi, a farmer of Madina village in Rohtak district.
