Patna: Makhana is one of the famous crops of Bihar. It is cultivated by farmers on a large scale in many cities here. Farmers' interest in it has increased due to the spectacular benefits at low cost. Makhana Mahotsav is currently being organized in Bihar to encourage farmers towards its cultivation. The event is being held at Patna's Gandhi Maidan on November 29 and 30.

Farmers will be taught how to increase profit in their cultivation, and how to make better use of machinery in the makhana festival. Explain that the Bihar government also gives subsidies for farmers cultivating makhana. The Horticulture Department gives a 75 percent subsidy given by the government for the realization of high-species seeds of Makhana. Its unit cost is Rs 97,000, which means farmers will get Rs 75,000 as a subsidy. At the same time, the subsidy is given by the government to set up makhana processing industries. According to the advisory issued by the government, financial assistance of up to 15 percent will be given to individual investors and up to 25 percent to Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs / FPCs).

Bihar produces 80 percent of the country's makhana. The climate here is considered very suitable for its cultivation. Apart from Assam, and Meghalaya, it is also cultivated a little in Odisha. It is advisable to cultivate it in ponds and puddled areas. Smooth loam soil is the most tremendous for makhana cultivation, it has a good yield in reservoirs, ponds, and stagnant water in the low ground. Makhana can also be cultivated in the lower land in which paddy is cultivated. By cultivating it, farmers can easily earn a profit of up to Rs 3 to 4 lakh at a low cost.
