How does govt deliver technology to farmers, minister wonders

Gwalior: Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Radha Mohan Singh said yesterday that to change the destiny of India, the rural scenario must be changed. The Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare was speaking today in Indian Soil Science Institute’s 81st Annual Conference at the Rajmata Vijay Raje Scindia Agriculture University, Gwalior.

The minister said that the greatest problem India was facing was how advanced technology and recent inventions could reach the farmers. He said that the first revolution in agricultural sector surfaced in the West based on abundance of water. Now we require another revolution which will commence from the East namely India, he said.

Soil scientists from different parts of the country are participating in the conference, which will be on for 3 days. The central theme of the conference is “Sustainability of Production in Pulses and More Crops with Low Resources”.

The minister said that the fundamental natural resources in Indian agriculture sector, like availability of big holdings as well as water, were going to be reduced. Singh added that the unexpected change in -triggered low-yield in crops led to loss for the farmers.

Singh said that the cost of agriculture must be reduced and the use of fertilizers and balanced. A timely sowing process, solutions to pest-related disorders and required techniques are to be used. This is the best scientific modus operandi for sustained agriculture.

The prominence of -fed farming, increasing population, unabated use of land, deterioration in natural resources resulting in ecological imbalance is leading to the decreasing agricultural production. He laid emphasis on finding out cost-effective, innovative and -friendly situations for durable farming.

The agriculture minister laid the foundation of the Unified Apiculture Development at the Agriculture Science Centre, Morena. Singh said that apiculture was a good source of income for agricultural labourers as well as farmers. This is very conducive for increasing the income of farmers. The minister further said that apiculture did not require any sophisticated technology, capital in abundance or any systematic infrastructure, but it gives bigger margins of profits.

The minister also inaugurated a farmers’ fair, a demonstration as well as the Apiculture Awareness Programme at the Zonal Agriculture Centre, Morena, under Rajmata Vijay Raje Scindia Agriculture University, Gwalior. Singh inaugurated the Agriculture Technical Information Centre, too.

Singh also said that Madhya Pradesh was enjoying a prominent status related to the agricultural sector compared to the national average development. During the course of the last years, the enhancement of farmers income has been 18.95 to 25% by dint of the labour of the farmers.
