Gurugram, October 23

Scuffling with DAP scarcity, Gurugram farmers from Pataudi, Sohna and Farukhnagar blocks are resorting both to purchase on-line substitutes or ‘smuggle’ the fertiliser from Rajasthan. The farmers who claimed that they had been already delayed for mustard sowing mentioned that they had no alternative however to begin sowing with out DAP or depend on fertiliser smuggled from different states.

“We suffered crop loss with Bajra and now if we delay sowing of mustard we will probably be ruined. Now we have no alternative however sow with out the fertiliser which can have an effect on the productiveness,” mentioned Vishnu Raghav, a farmer from a village in Sohna.

“My son managed to get me two baggage of DAP like fertiliser on-line. I’ve introduced it at excessive value from Alwar,” mentioned Mukesh Yadav of Farukhnagar who has not been in a position to get fertiliser from depot for per week now.

The scarcity of DAP (diammonium phosphate), a broadly used fertiliser, has made farmers of Nuh district a harried lot. They’ve now began making their kids skip college to queue up exterior fertiliser shops. In what has left each authorities and personal college authorities in blocks like Tauru, Farukhnagar and Nagina shocked, increasingly more boys are in search of go away citing buy of DAP as the rationale. Some are even in search of go away so long as per week.

“Youngsters are skipping college and fogeys insist that they want them to queue up for getting fertiliser. It’s not a narrative of only for in the future, however for the final three-four days scenario has gotten worse with complete courses not reporting,” mentioned an officiating headmaster of a Tauru primarily based college.

With no decision in sight, farmers have now began queuing up exterior retailers from the wee hours and lots of are even sleeping there at evening with complete household to save lots of up on extra spots.

Tokens are being distributed and solely 5 farmers are being allowed at one time in a retailer and it takes a median of 4 to 5 hours for farmers to get a bag of fertiliser.

Following latest loot at a fertiliser retailer in Ateli the native police have stepped up the safety of those shops and a serious chunk of pressure is manning the queues to keep up legislation and order.
