Chief Minister Sri K Chandrashekhar Rao on Tuesday directed the irrigation officials to ensure good flow of water for irrigation purposes in 1.22 lakh acres for better crop,

He also asked the officials to put the strategy in place to provide ‘minimum support price’ to entire farming community.

Chief Minister emphasised for greater coordination between agriculture, horticulture, marketing and  and Civil Supplies departments to make sure MSP is assured to the farmers for their produce.  He suggested that the department should identify National and International competitors in marketing of all agriculture products in the state and work out a strategy to face the competition.

He wanted that the government should become a vibrant purchaser of agriculture products and evolve a mechanism to see that the private persons also pay minimum support price to the farmer.

To accomplish, the CM said the department should analyse what are the food needs of Telangana People? What they are prefer to eat of late? What they are producing? How much they are importing? How much they are exporting?  and prepare proper and exact statistical data.

Based on this information, concerned departments can guide the farming community, which crop is more feasible if produced. Or,what to be produced? What crops are to be encouraged? Which is profitable? Which is useful? And the department should come to a clear-cut understanding on these issues.

To obtain perfect statistical data on these issues, the CM instructed that the agriculture department by way of a survey to be conducted within next ten days at the field level, should collect a comprehensive information on this.  Based on these definite estimates, said the CM that crop colonies are to be established in the state.

The CM instructed that the government policy should be in such a way that every agriculture product produced by the farmer should invariably get minimum support price and even better price more than that.  He made it clear that if necessary, the marketing department would directly purchase produce from the farmer and to mobilize funds for this the government will stand surety to the directorate of marketing.

The CM said that within five minutes after the agriculture produce reaches the market and weighing procedure is completed the farmer should be able to get cheque towards the sale proceeds.  He said that when marketing department starts purchasing the produce then not only the farmer gets a better price but also there would be competition among the purchasers.  The marketing department should buy from the farmer and export to other states and countries.
