THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Vegetable cultivation in Wayanad will get a big boost as the Agriculture Department is all set to launch ‘Vegetable Development Scheme’ in the district under Wayanad package.

The scheme will be implemented at a cost of `329.25 lakh. The Principal Agriculture Officer, Wayanad, had reported that claims worth

`11,20,180 of Kalpetta and Mananthavady blocks could not be encashed during the last three years since the bills were not honoured by the Treasuries concerned owing to treasury restrictions.

Hence the Director of Agriculture had submitted a proposal for settling seven claims connected with the construction of poly houses, open precision farming, capacity building programme and farmer’s training under vegetable development component of Wayanad package pertaining to Kalpetta and Mananthavady blocks for Rs 11,20,180.

The government had given administrative sanction to the scheme in the last week of August.
