Country headed for record production of foodgrains, horticulture crops, says NITI Aayog member

NEW DELHI, 1 May 2020: Indian minister of agriculture and farmers welfare, Narendra Singh Tomar has said the Government has accorded highest priority to the farming and agriculture sector even during the lockdown period.

Because of this, there has been no shortage of food grains and pulses across the country while the Government has also ensured availability of vegetables and milk supplies, the minister added.

Addressing a press conference here in New Delhi recently, the minister said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given primacy to the progress of ‘Gaon, Garib, Kisan’ (Villages, Poor and Farmers) and the government laid priority on uninterrupted continuity of agriculture activities even during the lockdown. 

Specific exemptions made for farming during lockdown

  • Farming operations by farmers and farm workers in the field;
  • Agencies engaged in procurement of agriculture products, including MSP operations;
  • ‘Mandis’ operated by the Agriculture Produce Market Committee or as notified by the State Government;
  • Shops and manufacturing/packaging units for Seeds, Fertilizers and Pesticides;
  • Intra and inter-state movement of harvesting and sowing related machines like combined harvester and other agriculture/ horticulture implements;
  • Cold storage and warehousing services;
  • Transportation for essential goods;
  • Shops of agriculture machinery, its spare parts (including its supply chain) and repairs;
  • Custom Hiring Centres (CHC) related to farm machinery.

With a view to sustain and promote agricultural activities, Tomar said, the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of Kharif and Rabi crops, including Paddy, wheat, pulses and oilseeds, is raised every season ensuring a level of 1.5 times of the cost of production.

He said the hike in MSP for Rabi crops assured a return of 50% to 109%  over cost of production of various crops. The centres for Rabi pulses and oilseeds have almost doubled from 1485 last year to 2790 this year.  As the procurement picks up, more centers will be opened as per the requirement, he added. 

Record food grain production during 2018-19

The Agriculture Minister said all these efforts have resulted in record foodgrain production. From 285.20 million tonnes in 2018-19, this FY the estimated foodgrain production is set to reach 291.95 million tonnes and for the next fiscal a target of 298.3 million tonnes is fixed.

He said protein revolution was achieved through increase in production of pulses of 28.3%, which witnessed a growth from 17.20 MTs in 2014-15 to 23.02 MTs in 2019-20. 

Focus on summer crops resulted in area sown of 57.07 lakh hectares this year against 41.31 lakh hectares last year. Similarly, the horticulture crops is also headed for an estimated record production of 313.35 million MT this FY as against 310.74 million MT in 2018-19.

Tomar said the Government is encouraging technology driven solutions to minimize human interface in the farming sector especially in view of social distancing norms to fight the COVID19 pandemic.
