Mr. Surendra Pannase also expressed his views over the present condition of the farmers, “Concern towards farming in this current situation can be clearly seen on the faces of the farmers”, he said.
“Cultivation of both cotton and orange is no longer profitable for the farmers. Earlier the holding of both the crops was more in the Santrachal region, but now its figure is decreasing day by day. Even in adverse circumstances, the farmer of Santrachal region is struggling hard for difficult crops like orange and cotton. Even if there is good production, many times the farmers are not able to get proper benefits due to brokers”, he further stated.
“Along with traditional farming, now mixed farming is also necessary. In the present environment, the farming business is being done for maintenance as well as profit and is also the biggest means of employment in the country. But due to the lack of information and natural-unnatural calamities, the farmer is continuously going in loss. Which can be converted into profit only with the right information and farming in the right way, there is not a lot of loss in farming, but by correcting the causes and methods of loss, it can be converted into profit and the problems faced in farming. You can be successful only by solving it!”, He further expressed.
