Now farmers can gauge market

JAIPUR: Addressing the valedictory session of the three-day Global Rajasthan Agritech Meet (GRAM) in Kota on Friday, Union minister of state for consumer affairs, food and public distribution, C R Chaudhary said that the time has come for the farmers to gauge the market for their produce

Knowing the forthcoming agri-trends in the market will not only get them the right price but also will prove to be a deterrent for the losses they suffer, said the minister. He also cautioned the farmers against the sheep mentality of following the same crop trend which has done well in a particular period.

 

The minister said that Kota division was most appropriate for organizing first of the divisional ‘GRAMs’. The division has 50% of the assured irrigated land as compared to the 30% of the entire state. GRAM will bring about a comprehensive change in the techniques of agriculture and allied sector as increasingly more farmers adopt modern technology, he further said.

 

During the valedictory session, farmers were facilitated for their contributions in the fields of agriculture, animal husbandry and dairy.

 

On the last day, MOU worth Rs 112.50 crores was with a private firm Shiv Health Foods LLP for setting up a manufacturing unit of high quality soy proteins.
