CCSHAU to organize district level farmer fairs at each Krishi Vigyan Kendra

Jag Mohan Thaken

Chandigarh, November 7;

 Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar has now decided to organize district level farmer fairs at each Krishi Vigyan Kendra after the Virtual Agriculture Fair.  Through these fairs, farmers are being informed about crop residue management and are being given other information on subjects like crop diversification.

 In this series, on Friday, Krishi Vigyan Kendra Sadalpur organized a farmers’ fair in village Sahu.  The fair was organized under the in-situ crop residue management project.  Instead of burning crop residue, scientists insisted on mixing them in the ground.  Farmers were also made aware of making more income by managing the crop residue properly.  They were told that burning the stubble has adverse effects on life, environment and health of the land.  Farmers can increase their income by preparing fertilizers and fodder by properly managing stubble.

At the fair, information was given about suitable machines like rotavator etc. for mixing the stubble into the ground.  He also called upon farmers directly sowing of wheat using zero drill and happy seeders so that instead of burning crop residues, they can be used in the land itself to increase fertility.

 More than 200 farmers from the surrounding village participated in the fair.  During this time, stalls of other departments of crop residue management were also set up at the fair.INF.
