 The district agriculture strategy committee has decided to grow soya bean in 200 hectares during the rabi season. Similarly, pulses will be grown in another 200 hectares of fertile land in the district.

The State Government will provide support services for growing soya bean in Kankdahada, Hindol, Sadar and Parjang blocks. Orientation workshops would also be organised to motivate farmers and seek their feedback.

The proposal was presented before the committee in the presence of officers from lead banks, cooperatives, Irrigation, Horticulture and Watershed departments and administrative officials. The strategy committee comprises the departments of agriculture, horticulture and soil conservation with deputy director of agriculture as its convenor.

Deputy Director of Agriculture Laxmidhar Behera said improved pulses cultivation would be taken up in another 200 hectares which will benefit 350 farmers.

Collector Bishnu Prasad Panda discussed provision of facilities with agriculturists and bankers for the rabi season. He urged the banks to extend assistance to farmers from existing schemes and facilities.
