'Adopt scientific methods to reap profits'

Progressive farmer K Javaregowda said by fixing scientific price for crops, the government should come forward to protect farmers, who are in dire straits due to crash in price for their produce.

Participating in a felicitation ceremony and 17th anniversary memorial discourse programme, organised by Ragi Lakshmanaiah Smaraka Samiti at Gandhi Bhavan in Mandya on Tuesday, he shared his experience with the participants.

Felicitation

He was felicitated for reaping maximum yield of ragi in one hectare of land.
Speaking on the occasion, he said farmer, who is considered as the backbone of the country, is being discriminated against.

The expenses incurred on agriculture is more than the profits, which gradually demoralises farmer. This is a bad sign and the government should concentrate on the welfare of farmers.

He said: “By adopting scientific methods, I was able to reap good yield of ragi. Farmers should concentrate on cultivating with minimum expenses that would help them to lead a peaceful life.”

K K Avadhani student awardee Rani A T, progressive farmers M A Fazil Pasha and N Chandru were also honoured on the occasion.

Model for others

Chamundeshwari Sugars managing director Parthasarathy said the achievement of these farmers should become a model for other farmers.

Horticulture department in-charge director Dr D L Maheshwar explained about various benefits provided by the department to farmers. Samiti president K Boraiah presided over the function.
