The recommendations of the Punjab Legislative Committee may assist in resolving some issues plaguing the state's agriculture sector
The introduction of a third crop, a cap on the number of bags of subsidised urea, and the conversion of agriculture tube-wells to solar tube-wells are all proposed as welcome steps by the Punjab Legislative Committee. However, some suggestions, such as requiring cotton producers to purchase crop insurance, are debatable.
Increasing and Sustaining the Agri Economy
Its suggestion for more localized crop Packages of Practices (PoPs) and advisories relevant to farmers in each district is a welcome one. The committee would like the Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) to make its research more relevant to farmers by recommending only active ingredients of chemical pesticides rather than brands in its PoPs. It has also urged PAU to prioritize marketing aspects of new crops over production practices and technologies.
