Even they can purchase danamrutham, nutritious fodder packets, each weighing 25 kgs are available with them and the department is ready to supply to the farmers who book it online.
Danamrutham is complete nutritious fodder costs around Rs 14 per kg but the government is supplying it at Rs 3.50 per kg on subsidy. Dr Y Simhachalam, joint director of agriculture department, stated that they are updating their services.
