Punjab: Farmers not keen on doorstep plan, want services in mandis


Farmers and arhtiyas (commission agents) have termed the proposal of doorstep procurement of wheat as now not almost possible. They declare that cleaning, weighing and loading of grains now not possible in this type of system, as it isn't possible to take cleaning machines and weighing bridges to the fields or houses of farmers. The farmers fear that procurement season would linger on for much longer, leaving very little time for sowing of cotton crop within the cotton belt.
