Horticulture is getting expensive day by day in the state. On the one hand the equipment is becoming expensive and on the other hand the skyrocketing prices of medicines and fertilizers have also kept the farmers harassed. From above, now the government has also pulled back the hand of cash. At the same time, due to non-availability of proper price of apples in the market, the right effort is being fulfilled. The previous government had brought a project of Rs 1134 crore to diversify horticulture, but the impact of that project has not been visible on the land so far. Alam is that Farmer is proving to be an expensive deal for small and medium farmers today. His eyes are now on the government to continue subsidies on fertilizers, medicines and equipment, if this does not happen, then the day is not far when the farmers does not give up on farming.
