January 2024 (FPO)-Times of Agriculture Magazine

Greetings, readers! On behalf of Times of Agriculture Magazine, I wish you a Happy New Year and a joyous 75th Republic Day! This issue focuses on Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs), powerful vehicles for empowering farmers nationwide.

FPOs act as registered companies, allowing them to easily access government loans of up to Rs 15 lakh. Through these organizations, farmers gain access to facilities like new technology, agricultural inputs like seeds and fertilizers, marketing support, processing facilities, irrigation systems, and loan assistance. Numerous FPOs are actively working to benefit farmers across the country.

In a nation like India, where landholdings are shrinking, FPOs can be true game-changers. These organizations hold the potential to improve the living standards and economic development of farmers. Recognizing this transformative potential, the Government of India is actively supporting FPO formation and growth, paving the way for a brighter future for our farmers.

Let’s all join hands in this meaningful effort for our farmers! By gaining complete information about FPOs from this issue of Times of Agriculture Magazine, and share this knowledge with farmers in your community. We hope you enjoy this edition. Please share your feedback; it helps us improve and serve you better.
