The Tobacco Institute of India (TII) held the twenty first version of the Tobacco Farmers’ Awards on Thursday to honour revolutionary farmers who’ve confirmed the advantages of contemporary agricultural strategies which have resulted in elevated output.












Mysuru MP Prathap Simha, Hunsur MLA H.P. Manjunath, and Periyapatna MLA Ok. Mahadeva had been amongst those that attended the awards occasion.

During the event, ten tobacco farmers from Karnataka had been honoured in two classes: ‘Best Farmer’ and ‘Recognition.’ The greatest farmer awards went to Channabasappa of Motha village, Kuchele Gowda of Seerenahalli, H.M. Paramesha of Hadlapura, Raghu of Kothavally Koppal, Suresh Ok.T. of Kottegala, and S.V. Yoganna of Seebally. In the popularity class, Deva Naika from Gowdagere, M.N. Ramachandra from M.P. Koppal, Aslam Pasha from Halaganahalli, and Ramakrishna from Lakkikuppe acquired awards.

Tobacco is a vital business crop in India, in response to Sharad Tandan, Director of TII, offering agricultural employment, farm income, and overseas trade earnings. India is the second largest tobacco grower on the earth and a serious exporter.












According to an ASSOCHAM analysis, the tobacco sector contributes roughly 12 lakh crore to the financial system, in response to a notice from TII.

Few months again, it was introduced that on this season, tobacco will receive the next value on public sale platforms throughout Karnataka. The common value for the estimated 5 million kg of tobacco auctioned thus far for the reason that markets opened on September 24, the common value has been 154 per kg, in comparison with 119 per kg throughout final 12 months’s public sale season.

Despite the truth that the crop dimension for the 12 months has been set at 97 million kg, sources within the tobacco enterprise count on a deficit of round 20 million kg this 12 months attributable to less-than-ideal rainfall.












Tobacco producers in Mysuru are anticipating costs to rise for the primary time in 4 years. According to Tobacco Board sources, the common value of tobacco has been declining over the earlier three years. It fell from 136 in 2018-19 to Rs.124 in 2019-20 earlier than rising to Rs.119.87 in 2020-21.
