Description

With the onset of kharif (monsoon) in the southern states of India, the majority of farmers have started procurement of inputs such as seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. Amidst COVID-19 induced disruptions in input production and distribution, the state governments are making efforts to ensure timely distribution of inputs to farmers. Based on recent field survey in Warangal rural district emerging issues around inputs are discussed with some solutions including make input products traceable, changes to India’s APMC and ECA acts and better monitoring of input value chain, among others.
