Telangana was discovered to be the country’s top supplier of cotton and second greatest supplier of paddy. On Tuesday, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar informed the Lok Sabha that Telangana provided about 178.55 lakh quintals of cotton and 94.48 lakh tonnes of paddy during the Kharif (Vaanakalam) Marketing Season 2020-21.
As a result, the state’s cotton purchase is nearly double that of Maharashtra, which came in second with 91.98 lakh quintals. In addition to the harvest acquired by individual businesses, the cotton crop was sold to Cotton Corporation of India.
Similarly, Telangana ranked second in paddy procurement for the Kharif Marketing Season 2020-21, with 94.48 lakh tonnes. Punjab took first place with 135.89 lakh tonnes. Punjab and Telangana procured an anticipated 132.1 lakh tonnes and 92 lakh tonnes during the Rabi (Yasangi) Marketing Season 2020-21, respectively.
During the present procurement, the state also purchased 6,743.84 tonnes of pulses. All of the crops were acquired from farmers at the Minimum Support Price as part of the Centre’s Price Support Scheme, which intended to eliminate intermediaries and help farmers. The procurement agency makes all payments to farmers for their produce straight into their bank accounts.
