Three-day agriculture summit in Gurgaon

A three-day Agri Leadership Summit 2015, a watershed of agriculture technical knowhow and activities, will be held at Leisure Valley Ground here starting March 13.

It was announced by Haryana Agriculture Minister Om Prakash Dhankhar here on Friday.

Highlighting the objective of this mega event, Mr. Dhankar said that about 20,000 agri leaders have been invited to be part of this summit and their experience would be used to motivate other fellow farmers. About one lakh farmers are expected to see the exhibitions of agri inputs and agri outputs (products) during the summit.

The outstanding farmers at the State-level would also be honoured in the summit, which will be inaugurated by the Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh.

He said that the other aim of the summit was to create a direct marketing chain of agri products from the farmer to the customer for the benefit of both. The other objective was to let the farmers know the latest techniques and innovations in the field of agriculture, which usually remain hidden in the laboratories.

According to Mr. Dhankar, through this summit the people would be able to see the ‘vision in action’ of the present State Government.

Mr. Dhankar said that now people demand A2 milk, the milk having yellow kerotene material present in abundance in the milk of our desi cows. A1 milk containing fat was not enough. So, our desi cows would also get promoted. With steps like this, prosperity would come to the houses of farmers.
