UP Keet/rog/kharpatvaar Yojana – Farmers Can Do Better Pest Control And Increase Their Earning

The UP Keet/Rog/Kharpatvaar Yojana helps farmers to manage pest control in a way that it doesn’t affect the crop management and their income. Owing to the changing weather, the issues such as weeds and pest-diseases are always on the rise. Farmers often spray insecticides other than the pest manager chemicals for saving the crops from getting infected. As a result, the cost of the crops rises and that brings down the earnings. The scheme addresses this aspect and helps the farmers with a subsidy on the chemicals so that there is no or less crop loss. And this in turn can increase their earning.
