Haryana state government is providing 50 per cent subsidy to farmers under the National Horticulture Mission. The state government is encouraging farmers to start adopting modern farming so that the income of farmers can increase.
Under the National Horticulture Mission up to 50 % subsidy is being provided by the Haryana government to the farmers for planting fruit orchards, cultivating flowers and producing vegetables.
The cultivation of horticultural crops requires less expenditure & labor and still provides better returns. It is due to this reason, the Haryana government wants farmers to take up horticulture crops so that they can earn good profits.
Until recently, farmers were traditionally cultivating cotton, bajra, wheat, mustard etc. in their fields which does not fetch them good income. Due to this, farmers have started adopting modern farming instead of traditional farming.
Farmers willing to take benefit of this subsidy scheme can contact the District Horticulture Office. The farmers who have planted orchards in 2021 under the Integrated Horticulture Development Mission can also apply for subsidy. Keep in mind that farmers will also have to carry the report of nursery bills verified by the National Horticulture Board. Irrigation is done by drip system by most of the farmers doing horticulture. For which the farmers had to spend a lot of money. But at present, 100% subsidy is being given to the farmers of Jhojhu, Badra area for the drip system. Apart from this, there is a plan to give 85% subsidy in Bond and Dadri section. The farmers who install drips in these areas only have to bear the GST.
