Recently LG Manoj Sinha shared the vision of the government for creating a strong ecosystem for the growth of agriculture and allied sectors.
He said that the fast pace of progress in reviving the agriculture & allied sector in the last three years gives us hope that more and more youth will be inspired to take up farming and we will be able to build a better future for our young generations.
Speaking on key features of the Holistic Agriculture Development Program, he said, the HADP projects will enhance the capacity of small & marginal farmers, improve their access to technology, institutional credit, domestic & international market and develop critical infrastructure such as post-harvest processing facilities.
He highlighted the reforms introduced to strengthen the agri-economy and to deliver socio-economic benefits to small and marginal farmers of the UT.
We are implementing several new initiatives such as Rural Business and Service Hubs to provide critical inputs, market intervention in favour of farmers to ensure that the benefits of the crops reach directly to the farming community.
He congratulated the farmers of Budgam for transforming the agricultural scenario of the district.
He reiterated the government’s commitment towards creation of a support system to facilitate the farmers, who are adopting the cultivation of Exotic Vegetables, Niche Crops, medicinal, high density cultivation and floriculture.
