Instructions to connect more and more farmers with KCC

He told the officials of the department to cover more and more farmers with KCC and take initiative to provide KCC loans. It is seen that banks are not showing interest in sanctioning KCC loans. In such a situation, work in the direction of launching cooperative banks and rural banks.

Explore the possibilities of exporting agricultural products

The CM said that in a state like Jharkhand, there are many such agricultural and forest produce, which yield well. But, the farmers do not get the proper benefit from it. In such a situation, along with making these agricultural products available in the market, explore the possibilities of their export.

Prepare an action plan keeping in view the weather trend

In such a situation, prepare an action plan to link agricultural production with new crops or cropping systems. Motivate farmers to do alternative farming. Inform them about the techniques in this regard as well. He also said that farmers should be encouraged to cultivate millets, pulses and oil seeds.

Take steps to keep farmers engaged with farming

The Chief Minister said that today the cultivable land is decreasing and farmers are also turning into agricultural laborers. This is not a good sign for agriculture in any way. In such a situation, those farmers who are forced to become agricultural labourers, should be linked to schemes like Birsa Harit Gram Yojana and Nilambar-Pitamber Jal Samriddhi Yojana. With this, they will also be associated with agriculture and related works and their income will also increase.

Get animal insurance

CM Hemant Soren said that animal husbandry is very important for the farmers of the state from Jharkhand. If the animals die due to any reason, then the farmers and cattle rearers are financially broken. In such a situation, ensure the insurance of all the animals. For this, make a policy for insurance based on the calculation of animals in 2019.
