The Iraqi government has authorized the Minister of Agriculture to purchase 60,000 tons of DAP (di-ammonium phosphate) fertilizer, at a price not exceeding 1,550,000 dinars per ton, an additional quantity previously contracted at 90,000 tons, from the Ministry of Industry.
It describes this as being an exception to the stipulated contracting methods.
The decison was approved at this week's cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani.
