National producers have easier access to quality fertilizers at lower prices

Written by Paty Salinas

The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG), progresses with strategies to achieve food security in the country, with a historic support to families and associations engaged in the production of basic grains, vegetables, fruit trees, among others.

A new milestone was marked this wednesday with the beginning of the sale of a line of agricultural inputs at lower prices, in an event presided over by the Minister of Agriculture, Enrique Parada, and the executive director of the Centro Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria y Forestal (CENTA), Edgardo Reyes.

The commercialization, carried out by CENTA under the AgroCenta brand, began with the inputs most in demand in the market: ammonium sulfate, urea and the 16-20-0 and triple 15-15-15 formulas, as part of the Fertilizer Import and Commercialization Project to Support Agricultural Production and Productivity.

With the sale of agricultural inputs at favorable prices, the government of President Bukele promotes agriculture by reducing costs for producers, who will have more economic resources to invest and earn more income.

For this initiative it was necessary for the Legislative Assembly to approve an amendment to the CENTA law: "With this project we want to give producers more money to buy more inputs. The price of the fertilizer bags will be the same nationwide", said the head of this entity.

The sales room is located at the San Andres Experimental Station (km. 33 ½ highway to Santa Ana, Ciudad Arce, La Libertad), from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., without closing at noon.
