The state government is now looking for ways to provide this population with alternative jobs. Sources in the agriculture department and allied sectors said their authorities have stepped in to solve the issue stating that the sector will need thousands of labour in the next five months. About 63.5 lakh hectares make up the net sown area of 1.57 crore acres in the 13 districts.
When contacted, Srikakulam agriculture joint director K Sridhar said “The YRSUM is a boon to the agriculture. We welcome this programme as it will help farmers, who are currently facing shortage of labour. Besides, the shortage has pushed up daily wages. A farmer pays at least Rs 300-Rs 500 per head as daily wage to agriculture labour.
