The central government has so far taken a multi-pronged strategy as part of the National Mission on Oilseeds and Oil Palm to augment the availability of edible oils and reduce the import of edible oils by increasing the production, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare stated.
Earlier in May, to achieve self-sufficiency in the production of oilseeds, the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare adopted a multi-pronged strategy. Under the strategy, the Government of India approved an ambitious plan for the free distribution of high yielding varieties of seeds to the farmers for the Kharif season 2021 in the form of mini-kits, the central government stated.
To become Aatmanirbhar in oilseeds, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar also put emphasis on enhancing the productivity of oilseeds by increasing the availability of high yielding varieties of seeds for the farmers to use on their fields, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare stated.
