News : Helpline for Farmers Set Up
Mysuru, UK, July 2, 2015 -- The district administration has set up a farmers’ helpline at the Joint Director of Agriculture office to enable the farmers to information on the agriculture sector. Farmers can also file complaints against pawn brokers at 0821-2442239.
Shikha, Deputy Commissioner of Mysuru, directed the JD, Agriculture, to handle the help desk with the help of a senior official of the department who is well versed with agriculture schemes, government schemes and programmes and other related issues.
All information about agriculture and schemes of the government should be at his fingertips, the DC said and told the JD to give training to few of his staff about handling the helpline and attending to the calls of the farmers.
An official from the Periyapatna said that only two suicides were reported since last 15 years in Periyapatna and he appealed to the district administration to impress upon the government not to ban the tobacco lest many farmers may resort to suicide.
He said that tobacco farmers would get loans without any hassle unlike other farmers and the tobacco farmers did not know how to cultivate other crops too. He said that no other crop other than tobacco can be grown in Periyapatna and few other places which are rainfed.
