Institutions involved in the procurement, processing and marketing of oilseeds, including soybeans, include the NDDB, state-level cooperative marketing and processing federations, and NAFED. NDDB undertook these operations in some cases, and in other cases, it involved state-level cooperative organizations such as OILFED in Madhya Pradesh.
NAFED is the top organization of marketing cooperatives in India. State-level marketing federations are its constituent members.
Soybean producers generally use home-produced seeds and small quantities of inorganic fertilizers and pesticides. The major suppliers of fertilizers are public sector/cooperative organizations.
Farmers meet their requirements for production credit and investment credit from three sources, namely (i) personal savings, (ii) loans from private sources such as moneylenders, traders, and relatives and friends (iii) institutional sources such as commercial banks, land development banks and cooperatives.
Extension service for oil crop production is provided by the state agriculture departments, Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVK) and, to some extent, by the extension departments of state agricultural universities and ICAR institutes.
Non-Governmental organizations (NGOs) such as SPRA and SOPA played a significant role in promoting cultivation in the initial stages. SOPA is again playing an active role in promoting soybean production in various ways.
many farmers of gujrat and mostly Madhya Pradesh ..produce soybean.. much of them where export. then they proceed and import in the form of oil.
so why to ern them .
why not to produce oil frm it in India.
