New Delhi: Two Indan Air Force aircrafts carrying 100 tons of Nano Nitrogen liquidized fertilizers landed in Colombo on Thursday.
Indian High Commission in Sri Lanka stated via tweet, that the delivery was in response to a call by the Sri Lankan government for urgent support in airlifting nano fertilizers.
“On the day of #Deepawali, the Festival of Lights,#indianairforce once again brought ray of hope to #SriLanka. Responding to GoSL’s call for urgent support in airlifting nano fertilizers from #India,2 @IAF_MCC planes arrived in #Colombo carrying 100 tons of the product today,” IHC tweeted.
The commencement of import of Nano nitrogen liquidized fertilizers came months after Sri Lanka’s President Gotabaya Rajapasa’s decision in May this year to put a stop on chemical fertilizer imports.
Sri Lanka is having a huge shortage issue of fertilizers after the ban. On the other hand, India has stepped up to recover the shortage gap of nano fertilizer in Sri Lanka.
