Important suggestions as given by the farmers were fetching better market price/provision of Minimum Support Price (MSP) by the government (93.33%) was ranked first followed by prioritization of agricultural activities in MGNREGA scheme, development of pest and disease resistant varieties and development of suitable implements and equipments for all operations.
