Mysuru, July 7, 2015
Calls are pouring into the farmers’ helpline set up at the office of the Joint Director of Agriculture.
Over 130 farmers have called the helpline in the last five days and sought remedies for their problems.
The Agriculture Department at the behest of Deputy Commissioner C. Shikha had setup the helpline on July 1 to enable farmers to get technical guidance on scientific cultivation and to register complaints. The helpline aims to inform farmers that the administration is there to help them and to prevent them from taking any extreme step.
