Minimum Support Price

In a bid to support farmers, engaged in cultivation of aromatic plants, CAP decided to fix minimum support prices of some of the important aromatic oils which are commercially produced by farmers. This is being done in a manner so that farmers get remunerative price covering their actual cost of production and marginal profits.

This facility helps farmers to avoid distress sale and keep their interest alive in aromatic crops. At the time, farmers are at their liberty to sale their produce in the open market, should there be any chance for earning better.
