Prime Minister Launches 10,000 Farmer Producer Organisations across Country
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that 10,000 Farmers Producers Organisations will be launched in Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh. This organisation is aimed at providing small farmers a platform to collectively tackle their challenges right from accessing various agricultural inputs to marketing their produce.
About 86% farmers fall into small and marginal category, each having less than 1.1 hectare of landholding. Small, central and landless farmers face many challenges in the agricultural production phase such as availability of technology, quality seeds, fertilizers and pesticides.
Farmers' productive organizations collectively empower them to deal with such problems. Members of these organizations help with technology, financing, and marketing of commodities in the market, so that their incomes increase exponentially.
