The Government intends to support Green Gram (Mung bean) cultivation as an intermediate crop in the lands where paddy cannot be cultivated, according to the President’s Media Division.

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has taken this decision considering the information received during the observation duties at the Department of Agrarian Development.

President Rajapaksa has instructed the Ministry of Agriculture to provide financial assistance to farmers who cannot cultivate paddy in the Yala season and obtain required seeds for green gram cultivation as an intermediate crop during the Yala season due to lack of irrigation facilities, it said.
