Venkaiah asks agri scientists to help make farming viable

Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu has asked the agricultural scientists to work on making agriculture viable, profitable and sustainable. They should also strive to ensure food security to meet “the needs of a burgeoning population.”

Addressing agricultural scientists and researchers at the Indian Institute of Rice Research (IIRR) here on Saturday, he asked them to come out with innovative and out-of-the-box solutions to meet the challenges faced by farmers.

The focus of the discussion was on ‘Doubling Farm Income by 2022 in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana’. “A happy farmer makes a happy country,” he said.

“Another issue that needed attention was raising input costs. Crop diversification and promoting allied farming activities such as backyard poultry are equally important to increase farmers’ income,” he felt.

Asking scientists and researchers to spend time with farmers to understand their problems better, he felt that staying with farmers should be made mandatory for students pursuing agricultural courses.

He said the most critical need was to establish a dialogue with farmers and provide them with knowledge and material resources to increase their incomes.
