PUNJAB GOVT. NOTIFIES TO TRANSPLANT PADDY FROM JUNE 13
The Punjab Government has issued a notification thereby allowing the farmers from across the state to transplant paddy from June 13, 2019.
Acceding to the demand of various farmers’ organizations, the state government on the directive of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has taken this decision to pre-pone the date of paddy transplantation from June 20 fixed last year to June 13 this year.
Disclosing this here today, a spokesperson of the Agriculture Department said that this initiative would certainly obviate the farmers from various hardships being faced by them on account of late transplantation of paddy, which often led to higher moisture content at the time of harvesting.
