South Pacific Fertiliser is urging sugar farmers to place their orders in advance with the Fiji Sugar Corporation field staff to allow for timely supply of fertiliser.
Growers in Rakiraki and Drasa have raised their concerns on not receiving fertiliser on time.
SPF general manager Ashwin Ram says they are aware of the issue and are working on it.
“I can assure all farmers today that we are making every effort to deliver your (farmers) fertiliser. As of today I think we have fifteen loads outstanding for Penang Mill and I think it is quite a big number.”
Ram says they are making every effort to deliver fertilisers to everyone before Fiji enters the rainy season.
