In developing and under develped countries the cost of chemical fertilizers is very high. But the growers / smallholders are very poor. The growers are not able to buy the chemical fertilizers. As the soil fertility in theses countries is also low because of low organic matter in soil. Therefore, yield is very low which is the main casuse of food security issue in these countries. The UN organizations need to think about the high prices of chemical fertilizers. Better if FAO or other organizations try their best to reduce the higher prices of chemical fertilizers. The govevernments must give the fertilizers to growers on subsidized rates. Otherwise, decline in soil fertility and food security problem will further increase, thanks.
