Income-centric approach to double farmers' income: Agriculture Minister

New Delhi, Oct 25 (IANS) Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh on Thursday said that the government has reoriented the farm sector by focusing on an income-centric approach that stresses on achieving high productivity, reduced cost, and a remunerative crop price to double the farmers’ income.

Addressing an event here, he said that the budget outlay for the sector was increased by 74.5 per cent during 2014-19, with an objective of more farm profits.

Singh listed several measures taken by the government such as Soil Health Cards, and the electronic National Agriculture Market.


He said farmers’ income could be doubled through a good strategy, proper implementation of the programmes, adequate resources and good governance.
