Turmeric Cluster Development Programme in West Jaintia hills;
Meghalaya’s Lakadong turmeric is one of the finest varieties of turmeric in the world and is grown exclusively in the West Jaintia Hills region, with significant involvement of women farmers and entrepreneurs in its cultivation and processing. Over 13,000 farmers and collectives from 124 villages are engaged in the cultivation of this miracle spice. A total of 115 villages were found to be in the proximity of suitable areas for turmeric cultivation in Jaintia Hills of Meghalaya.
The Government of Meghalaya in collaboration with Meghalaya Basin Management Agency (MBMA) adopted a mission- mode approach to bring in transformational changes in the value chain of Lakadong Turmeric and provide sustainable livelihoods to the small and marginal farmers of the State. The Cluster Development Programme (CDP) project is estimated to cost 52.33 Crore which includes Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare (MoA&FW) share as grant-in-aid and the IA shall also provide equity. The project is expected to be implemented in four years.
The value chain interventions have so far successfully revitalized turmeric farming in the Jaintia Hills region with 13 times increase in the number of farmers engaged in turmeric cultivation and a 66 percent growth in production. The focussed initiatives have provided end-to-end support to the farmers to move towards a doubled income and beyond.
