Broom grass cultivators all across Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council administered area, particularly growers of Koilamati locality where Broom grass is done, have made fresh demand to the authority concern for recognizing the produce as agricultural product instead of forest product for boosting the economy of the farmers. 

Farmers have alleged that to classify the agricultural product as forest produce, they have been facing unwanted legal hardship in selling Broom grass through a proper market opening. 

“We urge the authority to take necessary step for opening proper marketing facility where we can earn appropriate value, for supporting our family and enhance our financial system, void of interference of middlemen or touts “said one of the farmers.  

“The attitude of middlemen towards the farmers is either you sell your produce at the price offered or leave it,” added another broom grass grower Farmers also said that even though the prices of broom have gone up this year, supply has been very low due to its limited cultivation owing to fear of low rate that were offered to the farmers last year.
