The district administration has taken all steps to make available fertilizers to farmers without any hiccup, said V.Sampath, District Collector.

Speaking at the Farmers' grievance day meeting here on Friday, he said some of them had voiced concern over short supply of urea, potash and DAP. Their requirements would be fully met through Primary Agricultural Cooperative Societies.

The farmers also put forth the demand that three-phase electricity connections should be given on a priority basis to the farm sector and faulty transformers replaced without delay. They also called upon the Collector to open several Direct Purchase Centres wherever required.

For preventing rainwater run-off, the canals feeding the water sources should be desilted before the monsoon.

Joint Director of Agriculture T. Sekar, Personal Assistant to Collector (Agriculture) R.Chakravarthi, and Superintending Engineer (TANGEDCO) Asokan participated.
