SEPTEMBER 2017

Market Comments

In some areas where the planting season has started sales of DAP and NPK fertilizers have increased. Also, retailers supplying vegetable farmers have begun selling NPK 17:17:17. There has been a decrease in NPK sales in rice growing areas, as the topdressing period has begun thus more urea sales.
There are 14 listed subsidized fertilizer types but only 3 are available in retail shops, that is, DAP, urea and NPK. There has been an addition of 6 types of fertilizers to the list of subsidized fertilizers and 6 agro-dealers were replaced in the towns of Burera, Nyagatare and Rubavu because the existing ones were not active.
