Nizamabad: District Collector Yogitha Rana cautioned the farmers not to be mislead by the middlemen or commission agents while selling their food grains.
Participating in a sugar distribution programme under the Rythu Bandhu scheme at the agricultural market yard in the town on Friday, she urged the farmers to sell their produce at the purchasing centres set up by the government and make profits. The sugar distribution programme was being held under the aegis of the agricultural marketing committee.
The District Collector said that the farmers of the various villages could sell their produce directly under e-Nam at the agricultural market yard. She distributed cheques worth Rs 2.35 crore to 182 farmers who produced 31,000 bags of food grains during the financial year 2016-17.
She told the farmers who cultivated soya, maize and turmeric to sell their produce directly through e-Nam. The farmers, then, could get minimum support price (MSP) or remunerative price or their produce, she added.
She said that the farmers could also make profits and pay the labour charges to their workers. Horticultural Department Deputy Director Charan, DMO Mohammad Mir, District Agricultural Officer Mysoora Reddy, Agricultural Marketing Committee secretary Sangaiah and others were present.
