Pawar to CM: Prepare state-specific plans to boost agriculture

Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar today called upon the Chief Ministers to prepare State-specific plans by keeping in view the agro-climatic conditions, natural resource and availability of technology.

New Delhi, May 29 : Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar today called upon the Chief Ministers to prepare State-specific plans by keeping in view the agro-climatic conditions, natural resource and availability of technology.

Addressing the 53rd Meeting of the National Development Council (NDC), he said these plans should integrate various schemes in the agriculture sector with rural development programmes, irrigation projects and other related programmes.

He also said that there is a need to back the plans with an effective extension system, which should provide assistance to farmers not only on crop-related activities but also on animal resource development.

Pawar said the falling share of agriculture, irrigation and rural development in State Plan outlays, as one of the reasons for the decelerated agricultural growth.

He added that enhancing investment and plan outlays has to be complemented with effective implementation of programmes and schemes.

"The twin objectives of ensuring food security and improving the lot of our farmers can be achieved through higher investments in the agriculture and allied sectors, including irrigation," Pawar said.

"However, the allocation to this crucial sector, in relation to other sectors, has been going down over the years. This needs to be reversed', he added.
