Sri Lanka Army troops in Kilinochchi, in a bid to assist the local community to uplift their living standards facilitated the free distribution of a consignment of coconut fertilizer among a group of low income families in the region, recently. The consignment of fertilizer along with coconut seedling was provided to the beneficiaries during a ceremony held on Friday (03).

This agricultural incentive was made possible by the kind courtesy of Meerigama Silver Mill Company. During the ceremony, an awareness programme was also held by Coconut Development Board officers to educate the beneficiaries of proper growing methods, fertilizer application and other such best practices that would give better yield and increase income.
