Gandhinagar, 27 May 2021
Summer pulses are prepared in the field and are coming to the market.
Summer planting and production
In Gujarat, pulses were cultivated over a total area of ​​60590 hectares in summer and produced 72000 metric tons. In which there has been a loss of Rs 4550 crore due to the fall in prices.
Import of pulses
Due to the fall in the prices of pulses, the farmers of Gujarat have suffered a loss of Rs 4,550 crore. This happened because 10 days ago the central government allowed the import of pulses and the prices of foreign goods started to fall. Farmers have had to bear the brunt of reducing inflation. But a 40 per cent rise in the prices of petrol and diesel has not slowed it down. But the yield of farmers has been damaged.
Farmers were sacrificed to reduce inflation
To reduce the price of pulses, states have been instructed to pay crores to traders instead of large purchases. The reason for doing this is that the government wants to reduce the prices of pulses because inflation has increased. Therefore import is allowed.
In April 2021, inflation in pulses increased by 10.74 percent. Despite a 40 per cent increase in the prices of petrol and diesel, no reduction has been made but farmers have suffered heavy losses.
In this way, about 1 lakh farmers of Gujarat have been affected by these two steps.
Loss to farmers in Adadi
The price of Aadad has been reduced from Rs 8,000 to Rs 70,000 from Rs 10,000 per tonne.
Adad was planted in 13960 hectares and produced with 20970 metric tons. The yield is about 1502 kg per hectare.
Thus, there is a total loss of Rs 10,000 per tonne compared to the production of 20,000 metric tonnes at Adad. According to him, there has been a loss of Rs 2,000 crore.
Summer mug
The price of 1000 kg mug has been reduced from Rs 5,000 to Rs 65,000.
The summer mug was planted in 46630 hectares with a production of 51010 MT.
The fall in the price of summer mugs has come straight to Rs 5,000 per tonne. According to him, there has been a loss of Rs 2,550 crore in 51,000 tonne mug.
