The 25 by 25 agenda relates to reducing the food import bill by 25% till 2025. For this, the government has already started taking necessary actions. The crop farmers have started receiving materials and the needed inputs as promised by the authorities.

The material being distributed to the farmers would help in boosting the crop production. With the boost in crop production, the economic boost as well will be on the cards. As such, the local production would offer the cost benefits to the population of the country.
