Farmers will receive a 50% subsidy for growing horticultural crops; Check details
With declining incomes from conventional farming and increasing risks to farmers, the government is now encouraging individuals to focus on horticultural crops. Farmers, on the other hand, will only be ready for this if they are encouraged.
As a result, the Haryana government began providing farmers with a 50 percent per hectare subsidy for the establishment of new orchards. So that farmers can increase their profits by adopting horticulture. A farmer can get a grant for up to ten acres of orchard.
State government official says farmers get paid Rs.11500 per acre for establishing guava orchards, Rs. 12,000 for lemon orchards, and Rs. 15000 for amla orchards.

The government will also help in the production of sapote, which is rich in vitamins A and B, antioxidants, and fiber. A grant from Rs.9080 per acre would be provided for this purpose. That is to say that aid of up to 90,800 rupees can be obtained. According to the government, an acre of chiku culture will cost Rs. 8160. To benefit, submit an online request via the Haryana Horticultural Portal.
Mango orchards, on the other hand, cost Rs. 10200 per acre. A grant from 50% that is to say Rs.5100 per acre, would be provided. The grant area will be limited to 10 acres.
