Before Diwali, the central government can increase the MSP of 23 crops including wheat.

Even before the Lok Sabha elections, the Central Government can give a big gift to the farmers. It is being said that the government may soon approve increasing the MSP of various crops including wheat. It can also increase the SMSP of wheat by 10 percent.

Before the Lok Sabha elections, the Central Government is likely to give a big gift to the farmers. It is being said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government may increase the minimum support price of Rabi crops. Crores of farmers of the country will benefit greatly from this. According to sources, the central government can increase the MSP of wheat by Rs 150 to Rs 175 per quintal. This will especially benefit the farmers of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Bihar and Punjab. Wheat is cultivated the most in all these states.

The central government will increase the MSP of wheat by 3 to 10 percent next year.

According to media reports, the central government may increase the MSP of wheat by 3 percent to 10 percent for the coming year. If the central government does this, then the minimum support price of wheat can reach Rs 2300 per quintal. However, currently, the MSP of wheat is Rs 2125 per quintal. Apart from this, the government can also increase the MSP of lentils by up to 10 percent.

This decision will be taken for the marketing season 2024- 25

For your information, let us tell you that the MSP of mustard and sunflower can be increased by 5 to 7 percent. It is expected that in the coming week, the Central Government may approve to increase in the MSP of Rabi, pulses, and oilseed crops. The main thing is that the decision to increase the MSP will be taken for the marketing season 2024-25.

A total of 23 crops have been included in MSP.

For your information, let us tell you that the Center determines the Minimum Support Price on the recommendation of the Agricultural Costs and Prices Commission. 23 crops have been included in MSP. 7 cereals, 5 pulses, 7 oilseeds, and four cash crops are also included. Generally Rabi crop is sown between October and December. Also, it is harvested between February, March and April.

Know how many crops are included in MSP

Trichoderma's miraculous benefits in agriculture and horticulture

Trichoderma is a species of fungi that is continuously playing an important role in agriculture and horticulture due to its diverse beneficial effects on plants. This versatile group of fungi is becoming very rapidly popular for its mycoparitic, biocontrol and properties promoting plant growth.

1. Mycoparasitic Capabilities

Trichoderma species are skillful mycoparasites, which means they parasitize and control the development of other fungi. This characteristic is particularly valuable in agriculture, where pathogens produced by soil cause significant damage to the crop. The same species of Trichoderma actively attack and inhibit their growth by competing with nutrients and harmful fungi to the location.

2. Biocontrol agent

Trichoderma serves as a natural biocontrol agent against a wide range of pathogens of plants, including the species of fusarium, rhizoctonia and pythium. Trichoderma establishes a protective barrier, which prevents pathogenic fungi from infecting the roots of plants. This bio -control mechanism reduces the need for synthetic chemical fungicide, promotes durable and environmentally friendly agricultural practices.

 3. Inclusion of the protection mechanism of plants

Trichoderma induces the plant's own defence mechanism, increasing its immunity to diseases. Fungi stimulates the production of various defence-related compounds, such as phytoalexins and pathogenesis, proteins in plants. This systemic resistance helps crops to withstand infection and stress, which contributes to the overall health of plants.

4. Nutrient solubility

Some species of  Trichoderma display the ability to solve essential nutrients such as phosphorus, iron zinc as well as other micronutrients such as other micronutrients, making them more available to plants. This nutrient solubility increases the growth and development of plants, especially in the decreased soil, and reduces the requirement of synthetic fertilisers.

5. Advanced root development

Trichoderma promotes root growth and branches by producing substances that promote oxin and other plants. Better root systems result in better nutrients and water eclipses, which increases the strength and overall crop productivity of the plants.

6. Stress Tolerance

Trichoderma helps plants to deal with various environmental stresses, such as drought, salinity and excessive temperature. The symbiotic relationship between Trichoderma and plants can increase the ability to adapt and survive in the challenging conditions of the plants, eventually producing more flexible crops.

7. Bio -degradation of organic matter

 Trichoderma species contribute to the dissolution of organic matter in the soil. They secrete enzymes that facilitate the decomposition of organic residues, making the nutrients back into the soil. This recycling process improves soil composition and fertility, creating a favourable environment for the growth of plants.

8. Professional use

Trichoderma-based bio-fungal and bio-fertilizers have gained popularity in the agricultural industry. These commercial products containing live trichoderma inoculants are planted on seeds, soil or plant surfaces to provide various benefits above. Farmers are increasingly integrating these biological agents into their crop management practices to promote sustainable and eco-friendly agriculture.

9. Biological control of nematodes

Some Trichoderma strains display anti-activity against plant-parasitic nematodes. This bio -control capacity is valuable in the management of nematode infections, which is harmful to crop health.

10. Seed Treatment

Trichoderma-based formulation is used to protect seed treatment, protect seeds from soil-related pathogens and promote seedling installation. These preventive measures contribute to making crops healthy from the initial phase of development.


The versatile advantages of Trichoderma in agriculture and gardening arise from its mycopo -suitable capabilities, bio -control mechanisms, plant defence reactions, nutrient solutions, promoting root growth, increasing stress tolerance and contributing to organic matter decomposition. As the agricultural sector continues to adopt durable practices, the use of Trichoderma-based products is playing an important role in promoting plant health, reducing chemical inputs and ensuring food security.
