Addressing a press meet at Patrakarthara Bhavan here this morning, State Sugarcane Growers Association State President Kurubur Shanthakumar said the Fair & Remunerative Price (FRP) of sugarcane must be reconsidered as the cost of transportation and labour had gone up and added that the Government should establish Wheat Procurement Centres at all hoblies which would help the farmers besides fixing Minimum Support Price for all agriculture produce.
