Federation of Agriculturists Association today said farmers' income can be doubled only by implementing the M S Swaminathan Commission recommendations on prices of crops.

The association welcomed President Ram Nath Kovind's address to Parliament recently where he suggested doubling farmers' income.

Association president S Nallasamy said the farming community may not require subsidy, freebies or concessions like loans or loan waiver, if the recommendations were implemented with immediate effect in toto.

He alleged that the recommendations were kept on the back burner for the last 13 years.
