Krishi Mela from tomorrow at GKVK

Technologies developed by the University of Agricultural Sciences (UAS) is the focus of the event this year.

K Narayana Gowda, Vice-Chancellor, UAS, said special emphasis will be laid on agricultural processing and value addition, agricultural machinery and organic farming. As many as 600 stalls will be set up at the fair.

The University will also showcase the recently-developed hybrid crop systems, watershed management and integrated nutrient management. He said special attention will be given to organic farming and there would be an information cell for farmers to obtain details on all aspects of farming, including credit facility. Improved practices in dairy, poultry, animal husbandry and rare animal breeds will be on display.

The mela will offer solutions to various crop related problems.  “Our scientists will do this through the consultancy cell,” Gowda said, adding that two agriculturists (a man and a woman) from 17 districts will be felicitated on the occasion. The event will last up to November 20.
