The state government has made all the arrangements including assured supply of power for irrigation, regular canal water supply for wheat sowing, he said.
About 4.50 lakh tonnes of DAP fertiliser has been made available to growers while 2.84 lakh quintals of certified wheat seed has been given to small and marginal farmers at a subsidy of Rs 1,000 per quintal.
Reaffirming the government commitment to persuade farmers towards balanced use of fertilisers, Pannu said a dedicated campaign has also been launched for educating farmers about benefits of its optimum use.
For the first time, around 13,000 direct wheat seeding machines have been deployed to sow wheat without burning paddy straw, Pannu said.
