Agro Rural began the new process for the International Acquisition of Urea Nitrogen Fertilizers for Agricultural Use within the framework of Emergency Decree No. 013-2022-MIDAGRI, which for the first time is carried out with an invitation to quote worldwide and through our embassies abroad.
Through a statement, the Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (Midagri) indicates that the new process responds to a responsible technical estimate based on the progress of the Register of Agricultural Producers (PPA), which will be expanded with the registration of new producers nationwide.
There will be 65,587 tons that the selected supplier or suppliers must deliver in two parts: the first delivery will be 41,372 tons and the second 24,215 tons; in order to provide registered producers with urea, as part of the State intervention strategy to guarantee the 2022-2023 agricultural campaign.
Likewise, Midagri specified that it coordinates with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through its embassies, the invitation to more than 110 companies from 52 countries. With this, the process will also allow the participation of other companies that register through our official channels.
“The goal is to have a broader participation of bidders from around the world, to ensure the timely delivery of urea within the highest international standards and the best market prices,” the statement said.
Midagri also guarantees permanent coordination with the Institutional Control Body (OCI) of Agro Rural, in order to ensure compliance and transparency of the process. The directive and the technical specifications of this new competition are published on the Midagri and Agro Rural websites.
