The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is implementing new major projects in the agriculture sector and is trying to connect all the sectors of agriculture in a big way.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha inaugurated UT level training & orientation program for effective implementation of 29 projects under holistic agriculture development plan.
He said that implementation of any scheme on the ground depends on four major factors – Mechanism, Resource, Coordination and Evaluation. And, it is these four aspects which translate the policy into an action programme.
The fifth factor is also necessary in the implementation of this ambitious project of the agriculture sector and that is Sensitivity. The farm has its own nature, it has its own language which the farmer understands very well. All stakeholders must extend support to farmers, he added.
He underscored that the UT administration is making committed efforts to protect the interest of farmers, to bring prosperity to farm and to their homes, and to instil self-respect in more than 13 lakh farmer families.
New agri-business enterprises, youth engagement & providing them unlimited access to resources, opening up employment opportunities in agriculture & allied sectors are other important areas we are focusing on. Our aim is also to create a secure ecosystem for small & marginal farmers.
