The center said on Saturday that it had completed a list of One District One Focus Products (ODOFP) driven by a cluster approach through the convergence of various schemes. Products have been identified from the agriculture, horticulture, animal, poultry, milk, fisheries, aquaculture and marine sectors of 728 districts across the country.
Fruits are identified in District 226, the highest on the list, with vegetables in District 107 and spices in District 105 in the second and third positions on the list. Paddy fields for major food crops have been identified in 40 districts and wheat has been identified in 5 districts.
According to an official statement, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has consulted with the Ministry of Food Processing Industry to complete the One District One Focus Product (ODOFP) product.
The list of products was finalized with input from the State / UT and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).
These products are promoted by a cluster approach through the convergence of the Indian government scheme, with the aim of increasing the value of the products and ultimately increasing the income of farmers. These identified products are supported under the PM-FME scheme of the Ministry of Food Processing Industry (PM formalization of micro-enterprise schemes), which provides incentives for promoters and micro-enterprise.
Many products also include a convergence of resources and approaches from other departments. The Ministry of Agriculture, Farmers and Welfare is the Horticulture Integrated Development Mission (MIDH), National Food Safety Mission (NFSM), Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), Paramplagat Krishi Vikas Yojna (PKVY).
The implementation of ODOFP by the provincial government provides support to benefit farmers, meet value-added expectations, and then strengthen agricultural exports.
