The recent actions taken by the interim government and law enforcement agencies to combat black markets have had an impact on fertilizer prices where prices have even crashed below the Notified prices. Dealers and hoarders are feeling the pressure, resulting in a decrease in fertilizer prices. In Punjab, DAP prices have witnessed a decline of approximately Rs. 400 to 600 per bag in recent days, thanks to the government’s intensified crackdown on smugglers and hoarders in the fertilizer market. However, the impact on urea prices is limited due to concerns about its availability.
Across regions like Multan and Bahawalpur, DAP prices have dropped from Rs. 13,000 to Rs. 12,400 per bag, while reports from Jhang, Okara, and Bahawalnagar also confirm a decrease to around Rs. 12,500 per bag. Prices in D.I Khan and Muzaffargarh have dipped to Rs. 12,650 and Rs. 12,600, respectively. Urea prices in areas like Faisalabad, Okara, D.G Khan, D.I Khan, Vehari, and Khanpur have fallen from as high as Rs. 4,600 per bag to a range of Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 4,200 per bag.
