Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that Haryana is ahead in crop production and horticulture, it cannot be praised enough. While speaking to media he said, “Today, farmers must cultivate new crops, use technology in production, and produce quality products. It is a matter of happiness that the farmers of Haryana and the Haryana government are walking on this path.”

In this program organized by the Horticulture Department of the Haryana Government, Union Minister Tomar praised the schemes being run for the farmers in the state. In Haryana, 30-pack houses are being built across the state through FPOs. The Haryana government has planned about 500 pack houses, not just 100 pack houses in the state. Setting up 100 pack houses will change the picture of Haryana, while 500 pack houses will bring revolution in the state's horticulture field.

Tomar also claimed that to help the farmers, the Central Government has deposited Rs 2,17,000 crore in the accounts of crores of farmers under the Kisan Samman Nidhi. The Minimum Support Price has been fixed for Rabi and Kharif crops, which is directly benefiting the farmers.

He also said that Haryana is the leading state in agriculture. The farmer here is in a good condition. There have been innovations in farming in the last 7 to 8 years. Efforts have been made to develop farmers and agriculture.

The Haryana government has helped the farmers by purchasing coarse grains. He said that the results of the new schemes of the Central Government and the Haryana Government have started coming. He also praised Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal and Agriculture Minister J.P. Dalal regarding progress in the agriculture sector.

Haryana's Agriculture Minister Dalal welcomed Union Agriculture Minister Tomar on his arrival in Haryana. He said that Haryana is a state of farmers. No other state has as many schemes as the Haryana government has brought for the farmers. This includes the Crop Insurance Scheme, Bhavantar Bharpayee Yojana, purchase of crops on MSP, proper arrangement of mandis, etc.

Dalal said that today there are 11 excellence centers in the state, through which crores of saplings are being prepared and given to the farmers. Farmers of Haryana are being given the benefit of the crop insurance scheme. The state government has doubled the budget for canals. Up to 85 percent subsidy is being given in the field of irrigation. The Haryana government has formed a pond authority for the renovation of ponds.

Along with this, brackish water farmers have been encouraged to take up shrimp farming. The land on which earlier the farmer used to earn 20 to 30 thousand rupees annually, today 20 to 30 lakh rupees are being earned from shrimp farming. Dalal said that cold stores and pack houses are being established in the state. The world's largest vegetable market is being set up in Gannaur, which will be spread over 5500 acres. It will cost Rs 10,000 crore to make it. This will employ thousands of people.

Dalal said that the day is not far when the products of the farmers of Haryana will go to America and other countries. He said that the farmer of Haryana is influenced by the policies of Modi and Manohar Lal. The prosperity of farmers will bring prosperity to Haryana. He said that Haryana was number one in agriculture, is number one, and will remain number one.
