  • In the intro, mention the rising prices of fertilisers.
  • In the body mention the fertiliser import bill and the cost associated with the import of the inputs and raw materials. In the next part, suggest the ways such as reducing the use of high-analysis fertilisers, promoting the use of SSP and complex fertilisers, incorporating MOP in complexes, revision of crop-wise recommendations etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to implement these measures to reduce the import bill and make country less susceptible to supply shocks.
