The Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI) on September 20, 2019, has decided to amend the operational guidelines for the Scheme for “Operation Greens”- Scheme for integrated development of Tomato, Onion and Potato (TOP) value chain based on the feedback from public and consultations with stakeholders. The Scheme has two pronged strategy of price stabilization measures for short term and integrated value chain development projects for long term.

The main objectives of the Scheme for Operation Greens are:

1. Enhancing value realization of TOP farmers by targeted interventions to strengthen TOP production clusters and their FPOs, and linking or connecting them with the market.

2. Price stabilisation for producers and consumers by proper production planning in the TOP clusters and introduction of dual use varieties through convergence with the Scheme implemented by Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH) and State Governments.

3. Reduction in post-harvest losses by creation of farm gate infrastructure, development of suitable agri-logistics, creation of appropriate storage capacity linking consumption centres.

4. Increase in food processing capacities and value addition in TOP value chain by creating firm linkages with production clusters.

5. Setting up of a market intelligence network to collect and collate real time data on demand and supply and price on regional and seasonal basis to moderate and check localized gluts of TOP crops.
