It gives us immense pleasure to inform you that the Agar plant of North-East part of India and chiefly Assam has been able to retain its recognition as an utmost valuable plant in National and international market.The agar plant found in Assam are scientifically called ‘Aquilaria malaccensis’ locally it is know as Sanchi or Agar.the most valuable quality of the plant in international market is its magnificent fragrance. The Government of Assam along with some concerned officials have ruined the status of Agar in markets by declaring it as an unnecessary plant.It is a highly unfortunate fact that the concerned departments have not been able to take sufficient steps to safeguard the interest of Agar growers and publicize the real value of Agar,despite knowing that it as ’Liquid Diamond’.
It is rather shameful fact that the Govt. of Assam has filed a status report through Draft Policy of Sustainable utilization of Agar Wood 2014 where Agar has been declared as worthless plant. The people of Assam in general and the Agar growers in particular are quite ignorant about this report.However, the Central Environment and Forest Minister has assured that a clear cut policy to safeguard the interest of this plant its growers would be declared within a short span of time. Hence,all the Agar growers are hereby appealed to come forward together and offer constructive suggestions to make this organisation a powerful one and act as an active member.
Our main demands of Sanchi (Agar) farmers were adopted unanimously in the 1st central conference of All Sanchi (Agar) Grower’s Associations of Assam and other officials
