Chandigarh: Haryana Horticulture Department is all set to implement various lucrative schemes and to provide subsidies, ranging from 50 to 100 per cent, in the field of polly-house farming to encourage the farmers to adopt this technology.
 
“Polly-house farming has emerged as far more remunerative than traditional cultivation of crops, for the farmers. Green house technology is a fast emerging area for the cultivation of vegetables,” Haryana’s Horticulture Department Director Satyavir said.
 
“We have decided to give 50 to 100 per cent subsidies to farmers, who are inclined towards using this technology. A special cell has been constituted for this purpose. Several incentives and subsidies will be provided to the farmers under national horticulture mission for this purpose,” he added.
 
Satyavir said that the farmers could earn more profit by adopting this technology and improved quality of vegetables could be obtained through this technology with less utilisation of resources.
 
The off seasonal vegetables such as tomatoes, brinjal, capsicum, cucumber, sweet gourd, watermelon and bitter gourd could also be cultivated in the poly house.

“We would provide subsidy up to 65 per cent on these crops. Besides, 100 per cent subsidy will be provided on tanks needed for drip irrigation system,” Satyavir said.
