The Tamil Nadu Government has asked the Centre to allocate an additional 30,000 tonnes of DAP fertiliser for June.

An official press release said the Chief Minister, Ms J. Jayalalithaa, has written to the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, to intervene to ensure timely supply of DAP and other fertilisers.

In the letter, the Chief Minister has pointed out that the water situation in the reservoirs in the State is encouraging and Indian Meteorological Department has forecast that the South West Monsoon is set to commence on time.

The State is geared for the kharif season for which it has been allotted 2 lakh tonnes of DAP. But the State has received just 20,000 tonnes of 47,000 tonnes up to May.

There is a shortfall of 27,000 tonnes and the State will need an additional 30,000 tonne of DAP during June 2011.
