This is the faith of the farmers in Chief Minister Raghubar Das that Jharkhand has left states of the south behind and becoming one of the leading states in the country in fish production, Singh said.
Addressing on the first day of the two-day Global Agriculture & Food Summit here, Singh said two lakh tonne fish were produced in 2018/19 compared to one lakh tonne in 2013/14.
In the production of fish seeds, the state produced 1060 crore seeds in 2018/19 compared to 100 crore fish seeds in 2013/14, he added.
State Emergency Fund had Rs 33 crore four years ago, set up to help the farmers, and he has gone up to Rs 61 crore in the last four years, he said.
He also said the MSP for paddy has risen to Rs 1750 this fiscal compared to Rs 961 in 2013/14.
A total 250 clusters have been created for organic farming in Jharkhand, Singh said.
The state government has also provided Rs 12.37 crore to purchase tools on lower rates, Singh said, adding there was no such fund in 2013/14.
