Green House & Shade Net House

To promote protected farming in India, farmers are being encouraged by the government to use poly houses and shade net house techniques for farming. Protected farming prevents crops from damage due to the natural calamity and weather uncertainties thus boosting productivity. 

Poly house & Shade net house techniques are becoming very popular amongst the farmers. But small farmers are not able to use this technology in farming due to weak economic conditions. Keeping this in mind, the Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture was launched by the government. Under this, financial support is provided to the farmers for poly houses & Shade net houses.

In this sequence, applications have been sought from farmers of selected districts of Madhya Pradesh for a greenhouse, shade net house, plastic mulching, packhouse & high-density drip less cultivation of pomegranate and lemon on subsidy to farmers under Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture in Madhya Pradesh. Interested farmers can apply for these components as per their requirements.
