In order to help agricultural producers with the purchase of fertilizers —given the repeated failures of the Government in international tenders for this input—, a reinforcement of the Fertiabono will be delivered, called Fertiabono II.
According to the head of the Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (Midagri), Nelly Paredes, the new subsidy will go to small producers who have from zero to five hectares of crops to purchase organic and inorganic fertilizers.
“The beneficiaries must have from zero to five hectares of crops and we are analyzing the amount, but we are talking about an average of S/500 per hectare”, the official advanced.
Paredes pointed out that the approval of the norm that authorizes Fertiabono II will be ready “at the end of January”, and after that the payment will proceed.
In this sense, he urged agricultural unions and organizations to register in the Register of Agricultural Producers (PPA) to be beneficiaries of monetary aid, which currently has 1.4 million registered producers nationwide.
To date, 276,227 producers have already received the Fertiabonowhich totals a disbursement of S/407.2 million (87.4% progress).
