Good News for farmers as Haryana Govt provides subsidies for cultivation of Horticulture Crops

Efforts are being made by the government to make farmers self-reliant and also double their income. For this, the central and state governments are running various schemes at their respective levels. Among these schemes is the National Horticulture Mission. Under this scheme, up to 50 % subsidy is being provided by the Haryana government to the farmers for planting fruit orchards, cultivating flowers and producing vegetables.

Haryana Government's Plan Regarding Horticulture

With the aim of making the farmers self-reliant and promoting environmental protection, the Haryana government is trying to plant more and more saplings. The state government is providing 50 percent subsidy to farmers under the National Horticulture Mission. Haryana Government believes that farmers should start adopting modern farming so that the income of farmers can increase.

The cultivation of horticultural crops requires less expenditure & labor and still provides better returns. It is due to this reason, the Haryana government wants farmers to take up horticulture crops so that they can earn good profits.

Until recently, farmers were traditionally cultivating cotton, bajra, wheat, mustard etc. in their fields which does not fetch them good income. Due to this, farmers have started adopting modern farming instead of traditional farming.

Subsidy on Various Crops:

Financial assistance is being provided by the government to the farmers interested in horticulture. 50 percent subsidy is given to the farmers planting orchards after completing the prescribed procedure.

Following are the Subsidy Rates per hectare fixed by the government for respective crops:

Crops

Subsidy per hectare

Guava

Rs 11502 and Rs 15495

Pomegranate

Rs 15900

Gooseberry

Rs 15000

Lemon

Rs 12000

How to apply for subsidy?

Farmers willing to take benefit of this subsidy scheme can contact the District Horticulture Office. The farmers who have planted orchards in 2021 under the Integrated Horticulture Development Mission can also apply for subsidy. Keep in mind that farmers will also have to carry the report of nursery bills verified by the National Horticulture Board.

Subsidy to Install Drip irrigation system

Irrigation is done by drip system by most of the farmers doing horticulture. For which the farmers had to spend a lot of money. But at present, 100% subsidy is being given to the farmers of Jhojhu, Badra area for the drip system. Apart from this, there is a plan to give 85% subsidy in Bond and Dadri section. The farmers who install drips in these areas only have to bear the GST.
