Regulatory Environment
 Regulated under the Essential Commodity Act
(ECA), amended in 1973
 Granted complete power to controllers to implement
the Act
 Resulted in barriers to entry:
 Concentration of industry in few hands
 Big investment is required to compete
 Support Services:
 NFDC collects data, bring stakeholders together, formulate
policies
 SFRI conducts long term fertilizer experiment by crops and
eco-regions, tests new materials and develop their
standards, helps farmers to adjust fertilizer doses, and help
regulators through test and reference labs
 Availability of credit
Empirical Findings of Demand
Estimation
 Dependent variable: Fertilizer use for N and P
(kg/ha)
 Major factor
 Price Elasticity:
 N: -0.17
 P: -0.004
 Other significant demand determinants:
 Presence of irrigation water (+)
 Farm size (-)
 Education (+)
 Access to off-farm income (-)
 Fertile soils (+)
Issues in Fertilizer Sector
 Too much regulation
 Restrictive rules have created cartel in processing and marketing
 Abnormal profits, especially during shortage period
 Public sector control on urea imports (mismanagement creates
shortages)
 Gas shortage creates 35% underutilization of capacity
 Uncertain supply increased operational cost
 No mechanism of transferring gas subsidy to farmers
 Fertilizer subsidy affecting whole Free Trade Regime
 Suboptimal NPK ratio promoted through subsidy on N
 Emphasis on more rather than efficient use of fertilizer
 N use is fast reaching to the optimal level
 No innovation in developing new efficient products
 Efficient methods of application has not been explored
 Resource degradation induced by intensification

Recommendations
 Processing
 Gas distribution proportionate to capacity and modernization
 Gas subsidy only in high int’l price situation, with clear mechanism of how to reflect
it in prices
 Clear gas schedules
 Marketing
 Relaxation of rules to allow small companies in marketing
 Deregulation of imports and Govt. out from marketing even if it is only for imports.
 Clear standards and their implementation for new products, such as
manures, micronutrients, etc.
 Use in Production
 Develop efficient fertilizer use and application
 Test and promote efficient and environment friendly fertilizer products
 More responsive crop varieties
 Computer-based models to determine fertilizer use according to land resources
 Stocks
 Specified stock of fertilizer preserved to be released for crisis period
Thank you!

  • 9. Regulatory Environment  Regulated under the Essential Commodity Act (ECA), amended in 1973  Granted complete power to controllers to implement the Act  Resulted in barriers to entry:  Concentration of industry in few hands  Big investment is required to compete  Support Services:  NFDC collects data, bring stakeholders together, formulate policies  SFRI conducts long term fertilizer experiment by crops and eco-regions, tests new materials and develop their standards, helps farmers to adjust fertilizer doses, and help regulators through test and reference labs  Availability of credit
  • 10. Empirical Findings of Demand Estimation  Dependent variable: Fertilizer use for N and P (kg/ha)  Major factor  Price Elasticity:  N: -0.17  P: -0.004  Other significant demand determinants:  Presence of irrigation water (+)  Farm size (-)  Education (+)  Access to off-farm income (-)  Fertile soils (+)
  • 11. Issues in Fertilizer Sector  Too much regulation  Restrictive rules have created cartel in processing and marketing  Abnormal profits, especially during shortage period  Public sector control on urea imports (mismanagement creates shortages)  Gas shortage creates 35% underutilization of capacity  Uncertain supply increased operational cost  No mechanism of transferring gas subsidy to farmers  Fertilizer subsidy affecting whole Free Trade Regime  Suboptimal NPK ratio promoted through subsidy on N  Emphasis on more rather than efficient use of fertilizer  N use is fast reaching to the optimal level  No innovation in developing new efficient products  Efficient methods of application has not been explored  Resource degradation induced by intensification

  • 14. Recommendations  Processing  Gas distribution proportionate to capacity and modernization  Gas subsidy only in high int’l price situation, with clear mechanism of how to reflect it in prices  Clear gas schedules  Marketing  Relaxation of rules to allow small companies in marketing  Deregulation of imports and Govt. out from marketing even if it is only for imports.  Clear standards and their implementation for new products, such as manures, micronutrients, etc.  Use in Production  Develop efficient fertilizer use and application  Test and promote efficient and environment friendly fertilizer products  More responsive crop varieties  Computer-based models to determine fertilizer use according to land resources  Stocks  Specified stock of fertilizer preserved to be released for crisis period
