Another important gift to the residents of Vananchal

According to the instructions of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, important decisions have been taken in the interest of tribal-forest farmers who are engaged in sericulture and coco production in Bastar division. Under this, the purchase of rally cosa will now be done by Chhattisgarh State Minor Forest Produce Association on support price. Forest and Climate Change Minister Mr. Mohammad Akbar informed that due to this important decision of the government, now the local residents will get maximum benefit of processing including production of Rally Kosa. Giving information in this regard, Managing Director, State Minor Forest Produce Association, Mr. Sanjay Shukla said that Chief Minister Mr. Baghel has also directed to increase the employment at the local level by increasing the local processing of rally cosa in the state. It is worth mentioning that the state of Chhattisgarh is the leader in cocoa production. Two types of Kosa are produced in the state, which are called Rally and Daba Kosa. At present, Daba Kosa is purchased by the Silk Department, but Rally Kosa is purchased through traders. In view of this, Chhattisgarh State Minor Forest Produce Association has been directed to purchase Rally Kosa produced in Chhattisgarh by Chief Minister Mr. Baghel at support price. Residents including tribal-forest farmers of Jagdalpur, Dantewada, Keshkal, Narayanpur, Kondagaon and Sukma districts of the state will get direct benefits. It is noteworthy that the production of Rally Kosa mainly occurs naturally on the Sal tree. Daba Kosa is produced on trees like Arjuna, Saja and Lendia. Rally Kosa is superior to Daba Kosa in quantity and quality. Rally Kosa 2 season takes place in Bhado and Chaiti. The quantity and quality of Bhado crop is more important. 8 to 12 crore rally cocoons are produced in the state of Chhattisgarh. Its average value is 30 to 40 crores. Also 9 to 10 crore cocoons are produced in the form of Daba Kosa, whose value is about 25 to 30 crores. At present, out of these, the purchase of Daba Kosa is done by the Silk Department, but the purchase of Rally Kosa is done through traders. Like this:Like Loading… Continue Reading
