(For Punjab farmers only) Under this scheme, a loan of Rs.1,01,100 is advanced for growing gladiolus on one acre of land. The loan is recoverable in five years with one year as grace period.


 

In1993-94, around 5.50 lakh bulbs of gladiolus were procured from Sikkim/Kalimpong and supplied to the farmers in Punjab on no-profit-no-loss basis. During 1994-95, 8.50 lakh gladiolus bulbs of the latest varieties were imported from Holland and supplied to farmers. Punjab Agro provided a fillip to the floriculture activity in the state by supplying around 30 lakh gladiolus bulbs to the farmers. To propagate new gladiolus varieties/fruits for trials and also to give proper training and demonstration to the prospective farmers, a floriculture centre is being set up at village Majra with financial assistance from the Union Government.

Punjab Agro Industries Corporation (PAIC) has set up a floriculture project in joint sector near Lalru under the name of M/s Punjab Blossoms Limited, with a capital outlay of Rs. 303 lakh. Another floriculture project has come up in public sector, named Toubro Industries Limited near Dappar in District Patiala.
