Integrated Cereals Development Programme

The Central Government is implementing Integrated Cereals Development Programme-wheat. It is part of a centrally sponsored scheme ‘Revised Macro Management of Agriculture’ under the Department of Agriculture & Cooperation for enhancement of agriculture production and productivity of cereals in the country. The scheme provides sufficient flexibility to the States to develop and pursue the programme on the basis of their regional priorities. The States have been given a free hand to finalize their sector-wise allocation as per their requirement of the development priorities.

This information was given by Shri Harish Rawat, Minister of State for Agriculture and Food Processing Industries in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
