PAU vice-chancellor Satbir Singh Gosal stated that agricultural expansion with a focus on economic growth while addressing the challenges of natural resource depletion and climate change is a university research priority.
Farmers must be environmentally conscious in today’s world, and the Kisan Melas for kharif crops will promote agricultural sustainability, he added.
According to Ashok Kumar, director of extension education, preparations are underway at PAU for the successful and smooth organisation of the Kisan Melas for the farmers, who are our most valuable assets.
“Their encouragement and active participation keeps PAU alert and in tune with the ever-changing and ever-evolving needs of the farming community,” he added.
Farmers interact with scientists at the Kisan Mela, which aids in the transfer of new agricultural technologies in various areas. Farmers become acquainted with the most recent agricultural developments.
