Palmyrah Development Mission

Palmyrah Development Mission was launched by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin recently. Under this initiative, the agriculture department will be planting 76 lakh palmyrah seeds across the state along the banks of waterbodies, agricultural land, fallow land, roadsides etc. The outlay for this scheme is Rs.3 crore.
Initially, the plan will involve planting the seeds in 30 districts. It will be later modified to cover the entire state, especially the rural areas. The government is considering planting about 25,000 seeds along Cooum banks and other such places in Chennai.
