Haryana farmers growing pulses, oilseed to get Rs 4K/acre grant

Chandigarh, Jul 3 (IANS): The Haryana government on Sunday said farmers cultivating pulses and oilseed crops will get a grant of Rs 4,000 per acre.

For this, a special scheme has been launched in seven districts of southern Haryana -- Jhajjar, Bhiwani, Charkhi Dadri, Mahendragarh, Rewari, Hisar, and Nuh.

An official spokesperson said the government is making efforts to increase the income of the farmers by reducing input costs, and this scheme has been started by the government to promote pulses and oilseed crops under the crop diversification plan.

The target is to promote pulses and oilseed crops on one lakh acres during this Kharif season. The pulse crops -- moong and tur -- will be promoted on 70,000 acres and oilseeds crops -- castor and groundnut -- on 30,000 acres.

The farmers taking advantage of this scheme are required to register on 'Meri Fasal Mera Byora' portal. The financial assistance will be transferred into the accounts of the farmers after the verification of the crop, an official statement said.
