Black wheat farmers are getting harder, buyers are not
Hapur. This harvest has turned into a losing business for the farmers who sow black wheat and dream of raising their fortunes through agriculture. Wheat of this type is not bought at any procurement point in the district. While farmers were assured that black wheat was a nutrient to help defeat diseases like cancer and diabetes, this seed was sown. But this type of wheat did not meet the ICR standard, in such a situation the farmers wander around selling about two thousand quintals of wheat.
Wheat is grown on a large scale in the district. However, the farmers only take over the normal wheat harvest. This time, too, normal wheat was sown on an area of ​​45,000 hectares. Their production was also bumper. But some scientists who came out of the research center gave farmers so many benefits of black wheat that farmers grew it in about 20 acres without worrying about the market.
There is no contract to buy this wheat from a state procurement center in the district. In such a situation the farmers reach the centers but have to return disappointed. Even in the private markets, there is no buyer.
NGO provided seeds
These seeds were made available to the farmers of Hapur through an NGO. Now farmers turn to the said NGO, they give no answer. In such a situation, the rural district’s farmers get stuck.
Farmers had sown the harvest with the confidence of the research center
The farmers of Hapur had no knowledge of wheat of this type. Scientists at a private research center in Mohali informed the farmers of Hapur. The farmers then sowed this harvest on an area of ​​around 18 hectares.
I was promised four times the price of regular wheat
Before sowing black wheat, farmers were told that the production of wheat of this variety is up to four times higher than that of normal wheat, and the price on the market is also many times higher. But the trust of the two was overshadowed by the farmers, neither their customers nor the production was anything special.
The benefits of black wheat were told
Farmers have been told that this variety of wheat is high in antioxidants. Its use can curb cancer, diabetes, stress, and heart disease. It has also been said that wheat flour of this type is sold up to Rs 70 / kg. But all of this is turned upside down.
Was told differently than normal wheat
Scientists at the research center said the amount of anthocyanin in normal wheat is 15ppm, while it is up to 140ppm in black wheat. The zinc content is also high in this wheat. At the same time, the pigment content is also high. It is also known as Nabi MG.
40 farmers have grown the harvest.
About 40 farmers in the district have grown this crop, although initially less wheat was grown. Most of the area of ​​this crop is in the fort area itself. Given the problems, the farmers have also refused to continue sowing.
Farmer Ravindra, a resident of Dayanagar village, said he grew black wheat on four bighas of land. Now he is wrong about his sale, but there is no buyer for it. The district administration should solve this problem.
The government has not received any orders to buy black wheat, which is why this wheat is not procured in the centers. Previous action will only be taken after the government has received orders .– District Marketing Officer, Suresh Yadav.
