Siddipet: District Collector P Venkatrami Reddy called upon the farmers of Erravally and Narasnnapet to make the co-operative agriculture a model for the rest of the country by making it a success.
Addressing the farmers at Erravally market yard on Tuesday, Collector asked them to put collective effort to decrease the investment in agriculture and improve productivity. Stating that the agriculture scientists have found the lands in these two villages suitable for soybean, paddy and maize cultivation, Collector said they have appointed retired agriculture officer Ramachandrudu as special officer to guide the farmers in cultivation.
Following the suggestion of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, the district administration had introduced the concept of co-operative cultivation couple of years ago at Erravelly and Narasannapet. The Collector said the concept has been yielding very good results.
