Farmers Producers Organisation (FPO) constituted a new team of board of directors at DAO conference hall, Zunheboto on April 19.

According to DIPR report, speaking at the induction programme, DAO Zunheboto Hukhato Sema briefed the gathering about the inception of FPO which was a centrally sponsored scheme.

He said that Mission Organic Value Chain Development (MOVCD) was an organic farming scheme and the North Eastern part of India was privileged with special focus by the central government because of its availability of rich and fertile virgin forests across the region.

He added that the main aim of the scheme was to help farmers produce more organic and healthy products for themselves and to reach others with the surplus, for which the FPO acted as a bridging device to communicate with other states of India and further.

Hukhato congratulated the new team and expressed optimism of the successes they would yield by working with sincerity for the betterment of the farmers.

Newly inducted chairman L Holuto Ayemi said that realising the potential of organic farming in the North Eastern region of the country, ministry of agriculture and farmer’s welfare launched the central sector scheme MOVCD for North Eastern region with an aim to develop certified organic production in a value chain mode to link growers with consumers and to support the development of the entire value chain.

He also said that till date, of the 14 clusters, a total of 1100 farmers had registered under the organisation and FPO has been registered to the cooperative society which now ensures the farmers as an individual or the organisation of various possible aids.

He further appealed the government to continue to reach the organisation with all possible means to work for prosperity of farmers while keeping in mind the needs of organic products which benefit consumers.

Agriculture inspector K Kikato Zhimomi spoke on the main reason behind the scheme which was to counter the health threats caused because of the consumption of non-organic products in the country and that MOVCD was considered as an only solution.

Earlier, the programme was chaired by FPO secretary Gideon Yeptho, dedicatory prayer by pastor ZTSBC Rev, Dr. Daniel Chishi, member of finance committee Shitokhu Achumi pronounced invocation and treasurer FPO, Kughavi Yeptho delivered vote of thanks.
