    Telangana Agriculture Minister Tummala Nageswara Rao spoke to farmers about the Rythu Bharosa Scheme through a video conference. Some farmers suggested a 5-acre limit for the scheme instead of 10 acres, with extra funds going to small and marginal farmers.

    During the Kharif season with good rains, farmers emphasized the need for timely insurance funds. They want the Rythu Bharosa Scheme to benefit small and marginal farmers who truly work in agriculture.

    Some farmers feel that those who pay taxes and own more than ten acres don’t need farmer insurance. They also want tenant farmers to receive insurance, but some worry it could disadvantage landowners.
