Agro Rural launches a new call for the purchase of urea after declaring the acquisition process void

The Foreign Ministry warned the Government about the fertilizer crisis, but ignored it

Even though he carried out a market study so that from January of this year fertilizers can be purchased and ensure the 2022-2023 agricultural campaign, the Executive did not make any purchases in the first months, according to the Punto Final report.

Talks began with officials from the Venezuelan government, which has the capacity to produce and export urea, as well as with Bolivia… Foreign Relations also began to make some inquiries”, indicated Eduardo Zegarra for the Sunday.

According to Latina documents, the former ministers of the agriculture sector and President Pedro Castillo had been aware of the food crisis since last year and had to anticipate the delivery of fertilizers to farmers, but this did not happen.
