Centre is taking a number of measures to enhance production of pulses and oilseeds through distribution of Seed Minikits of Pulses and Oilseeds for this Rabi season.
For Rabi 2022-23, Government is providing these seed minikits targeting monsoon deficit regions in the states apart from the regular distribution. States which received low rainfall during Kharif season such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand will receive these kits.
The minikits are being provided by central agencies and these are wholly funded by the government. Government is providing seed minikits to popularize the latest crop varieties among the farmers to increase production and productivity.
