Scientists from various research centres of the KAU, Indian Council of Agricultural Research institutes in the State and officials from the Department of Agriculture will participate in the workshop and present their research findings.

The technologies developed by the scientific community over the past five years will be presented in the workshop and will be included in the PoP after getting approval in the workshop.
