<p>The Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH) is one of several programs the Indian government has started for farmers. It focuses on the sector’s overall development in India. Under MIDH, the federal government gives 60% of the total funds used for development programs throughout all states, while the state governments provide 40%. The Himalayan and North Eastern states are not included in this program.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-174593″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-11t182523.091.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com download 2023 09 11t182523.091″ width=”1321″ height=”876″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-11t182523.091.jpg 276w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-11t182523.091-150×99.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1321px) 100vw, 1321px” title=”This Krishi Kendra in Tamil Nadu instructs farmers on profitable bamboo cultivation 21″></p>
<p>The Tamil Nadu Agricultural University’s Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) is training farmers on how to grow bamboo, which may be profitable for them, with the same goal in mind. It is situated in Tamil Nadu’s Thiruvarur district’s Needamanagalam neighborhood. It has been in operation since 2004. Its goal is to disseminate knowledge of technology in agriculture and other related disciplines while serving the requirements of the agricultural community in the Thiruvarur district.</p>
<p>KVK grows thornless bamboo and sells it to farmers at a discounted price. The public sector enterprises are given 400 bamboo seedlings per acre in this. According to Thiruthuraipoondi and Mutthupettai District Horticulture and Hill Crops Department Assistant Director Illasasan, the farmers get 200 bamboo seedlings per hectare of their property.</p>
<p>He continued by saying that farmers also get a subsidy of Rs 50,000 and technical agricultural inputs in addition to this. He described the growing of bamboo. It takes a bamboo plant 3–4 years to mature and produce.</p>
<p>You need at least one hectare of land to grow bamboo in a successful manner. It should be remembered that the soil needed to grow this plant is not very sandy. To plant the plant’s seedlings, dig a trench that is 2 feet deep and 2 feet broad. Cow dung may then be added as manure. After transplanting, water the plant right away. For three months, the plant has to be watered every day. You need to water them once a week after the first six months.</p>
