Hafed is the Sole State Nodal Agency for arrangement and distribution fertilizers through Cooperative Network in Haryana and is successfully making timely arrangements of all kinds of fertilizers. Agricultural inputs like seeds, fertilizers and pesticides/ insecticides/ weedicides play an important role in increasing the productivity of crops. Over the years, through the network of its Cooperatives, HAFED has been ensuring that the farmers get quality Inputs at reasonable prices. HAFED’s role in Inputs’ supply is important not only from economy point of view but also from the fact that with HAFED the farmer is sure of the quality/ purity and is saved the possibility of any damage to his crops. Fertilizer sale during the last few years is as under:-
|Year||Urea (figures in lac MT)||DAP (figures in lac MT)|
|State||HAFED||% age share of HAFED||State||HAFED||% age share of HAFED|
HAFED has played a vital role in controlling shortage of Urea and DAP in the state by taking timely action for advance stocking. HAFED has made advance tie ups with the Indian Potash Limited, the IFFCO, the Kribhco & NFL Fertilizer for advance stocking of DAP & UREA in the State.
