Director of Agricultural Marketing and Agri Business S. Natarajan inspected the Uzhavar Sandhai at Anna Nagar and Usilampatti regulated market on Monday.

A statement said around 85 farmers bring their produce of 17,300 kg to the Uzhavar Sandhai on a daily basis. Mr. Natarajan interacted with the farmers and took stock of any grievances. He also inspected the functioning of the vegetable waste composting machine and the solar-powered cold storage facility.

The officials also reviewed how efficiently farmers were being benefited by selling their produce under the e-NAM scheme or National Agriculture Market — an online trading platform for agricultural commodities — at the Usilampatti regulated market. The officials were directed to increase business through e-NAM.

Mr. Nataraj also interacted with the labourers and farmers and inspected the functioning of the drying yard and the godown as well.

Deputy Director (Agricultural Marketing and Agri Business) R. Valarmathy, Madurai Market Committee secretary V. Mercy Jeyarani and others were present.
