The farmers at Pallichal, a major vegetable-production centre in the district, will soon be equipped with a vehicle to transport their produce from the fields to markets. The State Horticulture Mission has provided a vehicle for Sanghamytri, a Pallichal-based agricultural products procurement and marketing group, under the “Vegetable Initiative” for the peri-urban cluster scheme. Agriculture Minister K.P. Mohanan is scheduled to flag off the vehicle near Press Club here on Thursday.
