As farmers prepare fields for kharif sowing, the government is considering increasing the minimum support price (MSP) of cotton by Rs 160 per quintal, to Rs 4,320 for the 2017-18 crop year beginning July. It is also planning to promote Bt cotton variety developed by the government research body ICAR and expects increased area coverage and better output on hopes of a good southwest monsoon that has already hit Kerala in advance. For the ongoing 2016-17 crop year, MSP of medium staple cotton has been fixed at Rs 3,860 per quintal and long staple cotton at Rs 4,160. According to sources, the Agriculture Ministry has proposed increase in cotton MSP by Rs 160 per quintal for the 2017-18 crop year, based on the recommendation of the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP).

Students, activists, farmers protest commercial use of GM mustard 17.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Students, farmers unions and environmental activists today staged a protest outside the Ministry of Environment here over the approval given for commercial use of genetically modified mustard by the crop regulator. The Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee (GEAC), a body of the ministry that evaluates genetically modified crops, had on May 11 recommended the commercial use of GM mustard. "GM crops affect farmers as they end up relying on companies who supply the seeds, thus giving no scope for reproduction of seeds," said a German native, living in India for seven years and associated with an urban farming company. Once the crop is used for commercial purposes, it cannot be called back because of cross pollination and its impact on health can be manifold, though there is no scientific evidence as of now, she said. The activists also termed GEACs functions as "unscientific" and "irregular". "We are asking for dissolution of GEAC as the body is discredited and its functions are always secretive," Kavitha ...
