Centre should procure more from West Bengal to benefit farmers, says Mamata's adviser

Land usage is very high in West Bengal and the state contributes to around 5% of global rice production, higher than the US, Latin America and Africa taken together. In a surplus situation like this, it is important to look at commercially gainful disposal methods of rice, so as to maximise the benefits for paddy growers, said P K Majumdar, advisor to West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on agriculture & allied sector at Bengal Rice Conclave 2019 organised by Indian Chamber of Commerce ..
Majumdar said that policy wise West Bengal remains adept in maximizing welfare for farmers, through crop diversification, Bangla Shashya Bima Yojana (fully borne by the state government), Bangla Sech Yojana for micro irrigationNSE -0.43 % practices. "However, the central procurement system should procure more from the state through Food Corporation of India for farmers to get the optimum benefit.
