This season will see the National Turmeric Board’s launch, according to BJP MP Arvind Dharmapuri. In addition to saying that the Union Government intends to set aside Rs 200 crore for infrastructure facilities to increase turmeric exports, he promised the creation of an office with four senior IAS officers.
During a discussion at the Market Yard, Dharmapuri urged farmers to switch to organic farming practices in order to avoid using pesticides and fungi. He conveyed hope for the implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna (PFBY) for crop insurance and asked the state administration to assist farmers.
Dharmapuri further demanded that the government execute the Market Intervention Scheme (MIS) in the event that the market price of turmeric drops. The National Turmeric Board was founded in October of the previous year with the objectives of leading things pertaining to turmeric, easing coordination with the Spices Board, and advancing the industry’s growth.
Turmeric exports are currently valued at Rs 1,600 crore, and by 2030, that figure is predicted to rise to Rs 8,300 crore. The initiatives of the National Turmeric Board are in line with the endeavors to bolster the turmeric industry and augment its expansion and advancement.
