Farmers Worried about Potato Seed Price

Himachal Agriculture Department has started distributing potato seeds to the farmers of sub-divisional Sangrah. 800 bags will be distributed to farmers in areas such as Sangrah, Nauradhar, Haripur, and Andheri. The packing of 50 kg per bag has been fixed at Rs 2450.

This seed of BASC Lahaul-Spiti is being given to the farmers by the department on grant money. Potato seed is getting about 40 percent more expensive this year compared to last year.

Local seedlings are getting the same rate in the market at Rs 3200 per bag. It may be noted that potato sowing is done on a large scale in the Nauradhar region. Majority: Potato is produced on behalf of farmers in Panchayats like Nauradhar, Devamanal, Chauras, Ghanduri, and Lanacheta, etc. Due to this only four hundred bags are being distributed by the Agriculture Department in Nauradhar Panchayat. This year, farmers are getting 40 percent costlier seed than last year, due to which farmers are also feeling disappointed.

Potential crop prices were received this time, but this year there is a possibility of less sowing due to getting expensive seeds. Subsidies are being available on potato, but farmers have to pay a hefty amount due to getting expensive seeds. Expert of Agriculture Department, Dr. Anoop Bhatna said that seeds are being distributed to farmers this week at Nauradhar Agriculture Center. Farmers can come here and take seeds.
