Pulwama, May 17: Agriculture Production & Farmers Welfare Department Pulwama, in collaboration with allied Departments on Wednesday organized an awareness-cum-sensitization programme to carry out farmers’ orientation during Kisan Sampark Abhiyan under Holistic Agriculture Development Programme (HADP). The programme was convened by the District Administration led by Deputy Commissioner (DC) Pulwama, Dr Basharat Qayoom.
Addressing the participants, DC said that the launch of Kisan Sampark Abhiyan in all panchayats of Pulwama is to educate farmers on various issues, including business management, entrepreneurship and government schemes. It aims to involve farmers, Panchayati Raj Institutions and youth to transform the agriculture and allied sectors and celebrate 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' as part of the programme, he added.
The DC urged the representatives of PRIs and other stakeholders to ensure larger participation throughout the three-month-long Abhiyan to avail of benefits under HADP. He said that awareness camps are being organized in each panchayat across the district to sensitize and acquaint farmers with opportunities offered under different schemes of Agriculture and allied sectors under HADP.
Under the programme, an IT platform has been launched which is a one-stop dashboard to avail all farmers-related services and schemes of the government with a facility for online application and approval. The online system also provides timely sector-wise, region-wise and crop-wise advisories to registered farmers through SMS, irrespective of whether they have undergone any course or not, he said.
Dr Basharat encouraged the officers to educate the farmers about the programme and ensure the availability and increased participation of farmers and Panchayati Raj Institution members. He said the significant initiative will ensure the effective & efficient implementation of projects under the Holistic Development of Agriculture & Allied Sectors. Kisan Sampark Abhiyan with the help of PRIs focusing on farmers’ orientation, and skilling courses for all interventions, will ensure the meticulous plan reaches the fields and prepare our farmers to meet new challenges, explore new possibilities and make farming accessible and profitable, he added.
