Products manufactured by industrial enterprise are import-substituting, their quality is guaranteed.

According to experts, until now, mineral fertilizers were imported from abroad and had a high price. It is the high cost of this type of product in domestic markets that has led to a decrease in demand for it.

In order to meet the needs of residents, especially the country's farmers, in mineral fertilizers of domestic production, the management of "TALCO Chemical" in Yovon district plans to use the available resources to organize the processing of local raw materials to the final product at the enterprise for the production of mineral fertilizers.

In the production of local mineral fertilizers, the import of this type of product into the country will be significantly reduced.
