The main point raised during the discussion was that many of the problems that have arisen at present in implementing these methods can be solved by producing the best quality bio-generated solid and liquid fertilisers as per the recommendations of the National Standards Institution in the country and providing to the farmers.
During the discussion it was further decided to continue the President’s organic farming policy taken for the welfare of the country.
“We look forward to continuing this initiative taken by our Government, including His Excellency the President, for the future welfare of the entire people of the country, without any reversal. We will never try to degrade the health of the people of the country in the hope of votes or preferences,” Subcommittee Chairman Shasheendra Rajapaksa said.
