Krishi Bhagya to benefit Kodagu farmers from this year 20.6.2017 Deccan Herald - District
The Krishi Bhagya scheme, introduced by the state government to help farmers, has been extended to Malnad, hilly areas and coastal districts. Accordingly, the scheme will be introduced in Kodagu in the current year. The scheme was implemented in 2014-15 to help farmers cultivate dry land, mainly due to vagaries of monsoon and was restricted to 23 districts and 107 taluks. The farming activities in district, however, had taken a set back the last few years with deficit rain.

It also supports horticulture crops, mixed cropping and dairy farming" Agriculture Department joint director K Ramappa told ...

City's water woes stay afloat 17.6.2017 DNA: Popular News
With the steady rise in mercury and the dog days of summer still hanging, the National Capital continues to suffer from a spiralling water crisis. Despite the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government's claims of putting in place another summer action plan. Delhi is facing a demand-supply gap of 265 million gallons a day (MGD) of drinking water. It is also fighting a festering battle with Haryana over Yamuna water sharing. The city-state is meeting its 70 per cent of water requirements from the river that has today become a sewage canal in most places. Delhi's worst-hit areas are its pockets in the southwest (rocky terrain), north floodplains (parched) and northwest. Experts say Delhi does not actually face a crisis when it comes to availability of water. The crisis lies in its supply as there is no equity in distribution. According to informal estimations, there are leakages that account for 25 per cent of the total water produced. Unfortunately, the city's water utility — Delhi Jal Board (DJB) — has not been ...

Ministry to look into coffee growers' problems 15.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The issue of coffee growers will be discussed by the ministry, said Union Minister for Commerce Nirmala Sitharaman. She was speaking at the coffee growers' convention in Mudigere on Thursday. "Growers should come forward to protect the coffee industry. Earlier, an IAS officer had been appointed as head of the Coffee Board. However, the problems faced by the coffee growers and labourers did not come to the notice of the officials. As a result, a coffee grower has been appointed president of Coffee Board," she said. "The growers face inconvenience owing to the vagaries of Nature. The government will provide assistance to construct check dams to improve the water table," she said and promised to extend the benefit of Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana to the Coffee Board as well. As no insurance is available for coffee planters, she appealed to the growers to make use of the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana itself. MP Shobha Karandlaje said that scientists could not find solution to borer ...
