Guaranteed price for Soya Beans

Oct 2, 2010 12:47:53 PM - itnnews.lk

The Government has announced a guaranteed price for Soya Beans. A streamlined programme will be launched to purchase the yield.

The price stipulated for a kilogram of Soya Beans is 85 rupees. Purchases are now being successfully made at this guaranteed price from the farmers. The Soya yield is being purchased by the Thriposha producing company affiliated to the Health Ministry. Facilities have been provided at the Welisara CWE Complex to stock the purchases. Agricultural Project Officers will be certifying the standards of the harvest. Finding solutions to the problems confronted by farmers in marketing their yields with the expected target exceeding, the government has introduced his programme. In addition, another objective is to increase the Thriposha production capacity. The Government has also banned the import of Soya Beans with immediate effect to encourage the local producer.
