All Party meeting on Cooperative Farming on Monday

Noted scientist MS Swaminathan and other leading scientists to participate

In order to make agriculture highly remunerative for small and marginal farmers, the government is mooting cooperative farming and has called an all party meet on Monday to elicit their opinion. Noted scientist MS Swaminathan, floor leaders of the State Assembly and Council, prominent persons from Agriculture sector, some Nobel laureates and former and present Vice Chancellors will be participating.

A preparatory meting was held in the office of the Chief Minister on Sunday and Agriculture Minister N Raghuveera Reddy later briefed the media. He said that in the 60 years since Independence, the number of landholdings had fragmented to 1.2 crore from 30 lakh. In another 15 to 20 years these would further break up into two crores, he said. The small holdings had become a deterrent to new technologies emerging in the agriculture sector. He maintained that the State Government felt consolidation of holdings was an imperative for progress.

Opinions of political leaders, scientists and experts in related sectors would be elicited at Monday's meeting. To begin with, cooperative farming would be taken up in one or two villages of each district and no pressure would be brought on the farmers to participate, he explained. The Government would help farmers reap good results in the dairy, poultry, fisheries, sheep rearing and food processing sectors, he said. Speaking on the occasion, Agriculture Technology Mission vice president Somayajulu said that the government would not grab land from any farmer.
