TANK, November 22: Authorities have distributed wheat seeds and black fertiliser to 180 farmers under the Government Development Programme in the Tank district.

The programme officer, Mr Adil, says the package includes one sack each wheat, as much fertiliser, a spray pump and 500 rupees for each farmer.

In addition, the farmers have also been imparted a one-day training. On the occasion, the farmers have expressed their happiness over distribution of the agriculture package.

A farmer, Mr Abdur Rahim, told TNN that had not been guided in such a way previously.

“The agriculture office in the district had not done anything significant for farmers in the past. Now our district has all machinery related to agriculture and relevant officials have started efforts to improve agriculture. Now growers in our area will be able to compete with counterparts in other districts in terms of produce,” stated another farmer of the area.
