Gandhinagar, May 10: Gujarat chief minister Anandiben Patel on Monday said that the new comprehensive Agricultural Business Policy-2016 envisions not doubling of agricultural income in the state, but aims to increase it four times that of current levels. While launching the 12th edition of the state-wide Krishi Mahotsav from Anand and releasing the new Krishi Business Policy-2016, the CM attributed the almost threefold rise in the yields of groundnut, bajri, wheat, banana and rai from 900 to 2,700 kg/ha in the state due to efforts taken during the Krishi Mahotsav.
