The National Conference on Agriculture for Rabi Campaign 2022–23 was officially opened today at NASC, Pusa, New Delhi, by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. He said in his speech to the conference that the country’s food grain output is predicted to be 3157 lakh tonnes according to the 4th Advance Estimates (2021–22), which is 50 lakh tonnes greater than the production of food grain in 2020–21. In 2021–22, the global production of pulses and oilseeds is anticipated to hit records of 277 and 377 lakh tonnes, respectively.
According to Tomar, the Central and State Governments are collaborating to carry out their respective agricultural obligations. In terms of production, a lot of effort has been done in the nation, leading to an increase in the production of food grains, pulses, and oilseeds. Currently, addressing and resolving agricultural issues is of the utmost importance.
In this regard, he brought up the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, through which farmers have received compensation for crop losses of Rs. 1.22 lakh billion. Tomar thought that this plan should apply to all farmers. This will reassure small farmers in particular. He claimed that the promotion of organic and natural farming is due to the fact that the use of chemical fertilisers is decreasing soil yield. Natural farming is another area where Prime Minister Modi puts focus. The federal government, headed by the Prime Minister, is advancing the agricultural sector. Additionally, Krishi Vigyan Kendras are being set up. Additionally, state governments need to work harder in this area.
The Mustard Mission’s success in its first two years of existence pleased the minister. From 91.24 to 117.46 lakh tonnes over the past two years, mustard production has increased by 29%. 10% more kg/ha were produced, from 1331 to 1458. Between 2019–20 and 2021–2022, rapeseed and mustard cultivation increased by 17%, from 68.56 lakh ha to 80.58 lakh ha. He applauded the efforts of the farming community and the state governments. The vacuum left by imports of palm and sunflower oil will be filled in part by increased mustard production. The government is currently carrying out Special Soybean and Sunflower Missions after the format of the Mustard Mission.
According to Tomar, the Central Government has started working on Digital Agriculture to close the communication gap between farmers and the government so that farmers can take advantage of government programmes in a transparent way. On the mission to advance digital agriculture, cooperation is also necessary. He added that 2023 will be recognised as the International Year of Millets as a result of the Prime Minister’s efforts. In this initiative, India will lead the world. The government is making an effort to raise millet output, exports, and farmer income. In order to promote healthy cereals in their respective states, he urged them to collaborate. On this day, the Minister of Agriculture published two publications.
