Agriculture Minister inaugurates mega palm oil plantation programme at Santinagar village

There is a huge demand for palm oil in the state. Therefore, palm oil plantations are being done to make the people of the country and state self-reliant based on palm oil.

Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Ratanlal Nath said this while inaugurating a mega palm oil plantation program at Shantinagar village in Jirania subdivision Belbari block today.

In the event, the Minister of Agriculture first inaugurated the program by sprinkling water on the saplings of palm trees. It is to be noted that this program was organized under the initiative of Department of Horticulture and Land Conservation and in collaboration with Patanjali Food Limited.

In the event, the agriculture minister also said that the farmers will benefit if palm trees are cultivated commercially. The government is sincerely working for the welfare of the people of all parts of the state.

Overall development of villages and towns is the priority area of the government. Speaking to reporters after the inauguration ceremony, the Agriculture Minister said that many lands are still lying vacant in the hilly areas of the state. The government has taken various programs to make the farmers economically self-reliant by utilizing these lands.

The Agriculture Minister said that it takes four years for a palm tree to mature. A subsidy of Rs 1 lakh per hectare will be given to the beneficiary during these four years. Rosen Devabarma, an educated young man who has passed M Tech, has planted palm trees on his three hectares of land. This is an example.
