Haryana to set up 200 pack-houses for vegetables and fruits

Haryana Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Jai Prakash Dalal said that the state government will open 200 integrated small and big packhouses in the state in the next three years and a budget of Rs 500 crores has also been allotted for this scheme.

The Agriculture Minister was addressing farmers today after inaugurating Haryana’s first integrated packhouse and crop group (Pihowa Vegetable Producer Company) under the Crop Group Development Scheme of Horticulture Department at Talhedi village in Kurukshetra district. He said that modern farming has emerged in Haryana with ‘Integrated PackHouse’ and ‘Crop Cluster Center’. This will not only increase the income of farmers but will also incline the farmers towards advanced and commercial agriculture. Through these packhouses, the profits of the products will directly reach the farmers and not to the middlemen. The initiative of collective farming will reduce the cost of farmers and the products will also have longer shelf life.
