Save agriculture, youth told

SCDCC Bank chairman M N Rajendra Kumar speaks at the valedictory of the training for arecanut tree climbers — Adike Kaushalya Pade—organised jointly by Campco, ICAR-CPCRI and the University of Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences, Shivamogga, at CPCRI regional station at Vittal on Sunday.

Youth should develop an interest in farming to save agriculture. Students should develop a keen interest in farming activities along with their studies, said SCDCC (South Canara District Central Cooperative) Bank chairman M N Rajendra Kumar. 

Speaking at the valedictory of the training for arecanut tree climbers — Adike Kaushalya Pade — jointly organised by Campco, ICAR-CPCRI and the University of Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences, Shivamogga, at CPCRI regional station at Vittal on Sunday, he said, “Maintenance of arecanut plantation is a challenging task for the farmers due to shortage of labourers. The training of arecanut tree climbers is a good initiative taken by Campco.” 

Distributing identity cards for the trainees, Shivamogga Arecanut Research Centre head Dr H Narayanaswamy said, “There has been a shortage of arecanut tree climbers for the last several years. The migration of youth to cities from villages has aggravated the problem of shortage of labourers.” 

Campco President S R Sathischandra said, “Campco is ready to train the youth in arecanut tree climbing in the future as well.”
