The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) has launched Daman program, in co-operation with Mahaseel company, to support local farms through pre-contracting for purchasing their vegetable produce for 2020-2021 season, and helping farmers set their production plan according to the needs of the local market.

During a virtual press conference yesterday, Director of the Agricultural Affairs Department at the MME, Mr. Yousuf Khalid Al Khulaifi, called on farmers to get registered for early pre-contracting with Mahaseel company to set their production plans, ensure sale at high guarantee prices, and achieve good income for their produce, highlighting that the registration is open until October 31.

Al Khulaifi emphasized that MME has assured farmers that Mahaseel will receive their crops from first and second class of vegetables throughout the season at fixed guarantee rates, regardless of market prices, paving the way for local farmers to draw their production and marketing plan to ensure a profitable return.
