Tikamgarh / Jatara. On one hand, emphasis is being laid on doubling the revenue of the farmers, whereas the poor seeds for the crops are being distributed to the farmers. A case has been reported of distributing bad seeds of Urada by extension officers to the farmers in villages below Palera growth block of Jatara part. In this regard, the farmers have written a criticism to the district administration and lodged a criticism. Farmers of village Sagarawara Rajendra Singh, Bhallupal, Mangal Lal Singh knowledgeable that by way of the Agriculture Department, farmers are being given rotting seeds for sowing. The seed is of such a poor high quality that it isn’t doable to germinate. This seed is being given to farmers on the charge of 100 rupees per kg. The departmental workers say that the seeds usually are not out there due to scarcity. Farmers allege that the officers of the Agriculture Department, in connivance with the merchants, are giving bad seeds to the farmers by saying good high quality. The farmers have demanded an inquiry into the matter.
On the opposite hand, in accordance to the demand letter for the center which was given by way of the Agriculture Department in Jatara growth block, the committee has additionally not been made out there. DK Dixit of Agriculture Department mentioned that there are 15 committees in Jatara growth block. There was a requirement to present 150 quintal seeds on every committee, however 150 quintal seeds have been made out there from the district. In such a state of affairs, farmers are wandering right here for seeds. Farmers are being pressured to purchase from the market at costly costs.
I’ve simply obtained such info, if farmers are being despatched poorly then we come to examine this matter.
