Haryana to join national agriculture e-trade
Feb '16
Cotton farmers in Haryana stand to benefit once the state joins the online national agriculture market platform.

Haryana Agriculture Minister O P Dhankar told reporters in Chandigarh that the state will join the online national agriculture market platform to ensure farmers can get better returns by selling their produce in other states.

"We will be linking our 54 mandis out of 108 with national agriculture market in the first phase. With this, our farmers will get market in other states as well," Dhankar said.

He noted that at present, farmers have limited market opportunities to sell their produce.
Once Haryana joins the online market, no cotton farmer will have to return home with his produce if he cannot a good price at the local mandi.

"With linking of mandis with national agriculture market, a trader in Ambala or any other place can also buy his crop. With this move, farmers will be get good and competitive market and it will not be limited to one market. There will be e-trading,” the Minister said.

The national agriculture market is envisaged to create a unified market through the common e-platform and provide better price to farmers, improve supply chain and reduce wastages. (SH)
