For the success of agriculture, horticulture and other allied sectors, J&K administration is for an integrated approach so that the farm produce reaches to all the markets in time.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha said that integrated approach will enable and strengthen market access for small and marginal farmers. With inclusiveness we aim to improve credit flow by banks to the agriculture sector and particularly to small and marginal farmers: LG
He was chairing a high level meeting of J&K Advisory Board for Development of Kisans and UT’s agriculture department officials to discuss the roadmap on holistic development of agriculture & allied sectors in J&K, here at the Convention Center.
The meeting had meaningful and in-depth discussions wherein the participants shared their assessment of the farming sector, examined the apex committee’s recommendations and efforts by UT administration for a great agriculture transformation.
Speaking on the occasion, he said the Apex Committee on Holistic Agriculture has provided a roadmap to transform subsistence agriculture into sustainable commercial Agri-economy.
We are adopting an integrated approach to tackle agriculture’s extreme vulnerability to ensure increased productivity and enhanced resilience.
Our approach is farmer & community-centric enabling greater farmer participation in policies and ensuring their suggestions are taken into account in decision-making and benefit from increased productivity, diversification, access to credit & required technical assistance.
