Mishra was speaking at the online convocation of the Agricultural University, Jodhpur on Monday. “Farmers are the real scientists of the fields. Farmers can tell such methods to the students by which farming can be further upgraded.”
While addressing as Chief Guest, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that the agriculture sector is on the top priority of the state government.
Gehlot said, “There was a time in Rajasthan when farmers were completely dependent on rainfall for farming, but the Indira Gandhi Canal Project transformed large desert tracts of districts like Ganganagar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Hanumangarh into fertile agricultural land today. After the introduction of the Green Revolution, the country’s farmers made the country self-sufficient in agriculture with their hard work.”
The Chief Minister emphasized to pay special attention to research in the field of agriculture and to encourage the production of crops in accordance with the quality of soil, giving higher yields in less water and combining agriculture with technology.
