Agriculture Department will buy seed from Farmers

Mandi district

The Agriculture Department will now buy certified paddy seeds from farmers in the Mandi district. This will also double farmers' income. The Department of Agriculture had provided breeder and foundation seeds to progressive farmers during the Kharif season. The registration of these farmers was also done by the department. These days paddy crop is ready in the fields. While most of the farmers have completed harvesting. They have also gathered for the upcoming crop sowing. At the same time, farmers who were given breeder and foundation seed by the department can contact the nearest agricultural office to sell the seeds.

The state government has not yet determined the price to buy the seeds. Seed prices are expected to be fixed after 15 November. This seed is produced by the scientists of the Agricultural University. The agriculture department is then given to multiplying progressive farmers. Earlier, the Agriculture Department had to get the seeds from other states. It used to take a long time, but now the seeds of the district are doubled by the farmers. This does not make the department dependent on the institutions of other states.


Demand for paddy seed remains 900 Quintal

In Mandi district, the demand for paddy seed remains around 900 quintals, while the Agriculture Department sent a demand of 1200 quintals. The entire consignment has reached Mandi. It is given to farmers with a 27 percent subsidy. On the other hand, Deputy Director of Agriculture Department, Mandi, Dr. Kuldeep Verma said that certified seeds of paddy are being purchased from farmers by the Agriculture Department. This is given by the department to double the farmers so that the paddy seed does not have to be sourced from other states. The price for the purchase of seeds has not been determined yet.
