Haryana plans to set up 500 pack houses to revolutionise horticulture in the state
Narendra Singh Tomar, Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister inaugurated 30 Integrated Pack Houses across the state at Aterna village in Sonipat (Haryana) recently.
He said that Haryana is ahead in crop production and horticulture and it cannot be praised enough. Today it is necessary that farmers cultivate new crops, use technology in production and produce quality products. It is a matter of happiness that the farmers of Haryana and the Haryana government are walking on this path.
During this, Jayprakash Dalal, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister, Haryana, was also present.
In this programme organised by the Horticulture Department of the Haryana Government, Tomar praised the schemes being run for the farmers in the state. In Haryana, 30 pack houses are being built across the state through FPOs. The Haryana government has planned about 500 pack houses, and not just 100 pack houses in the state. Setting up of 100 pack houses will change the picture of Haryana, while 500 pack houses will bring revolution in the field of horticulture in the state.
Tomar said that the Government of India and Prime Minister Modi care about the farmers. To help the farmers, the Central Government has deposited Rs 2,17,000 crore in the accounts of crores of farmers under the Kisan Samman Nidhi. Minimum Support Price has been fixed for Rabi and Kharif crops, which is directly benefiting the farmers.
On this occasion, Sonipat’s MP Ramesh Kaushik also welcomed and felicitated Union Minister Tomar on reaching Sonipat.
