Agriculture Warehouse

The scheme for establishment of agriculture warehouse is an initiative of the Government of Meghalaya for better storage of agricultural commodities. The diverse agro-climatic conditions in the State provide a rich abundance of natural wealth and biodiversity, including some unique and well-sought after produces such as fruits, vegetables, and spices. To unlock the full potential of the agriculture and horticulture sector, the Government of Meghalaya has been prioritizing transformation of the primary sector and has undertaken numerous initiatives to uplift agriculture and allied sectors in the State. On similar lines, the agriculture warehouse scheme is introduced.

Agriculture warehousing is an integral part of the agri supply chain and is also linked to food security and agricultural growth.Warehouses are scientifically designed storage structures to protect and preserve the stored products. However, due to high capital investments the availability of warehousing infrastructure is limited in the State. The scheme aims to bridge the gap and encourage establishment of warehouses where agricultural commodities can be stored for a long period, thereby minimising wastage and costs.

The scheme will be implemented by the Meghalaya Basin Management Agency (MBMA), Government of Meghalaya.

Salient features of the scheme:

Up to 80% subsidy for project. The scheme would be implemented through a credit-linked subsidy model.
