Students of agri college conduct camp

Students of Adhiprasakthi Agriculture College, Kalavai conducted an organic farming camp as part of their Rural Agricultural Work Experience Programme recently.

Seven final year students of the college individually and as a group worked with farmers of Athiyanthal, Pandithapattu, Aadaiyur, Kosalai and Kananthampoondi near Tiruvannamalai. The students shared their technical knowledge with the farmers who in turn enlightened the students with their field experience.

Part of their technical dissemination underscores the importance of organic farming.

Farmers were taught the nuances of making organic farming fluids such as Amirtha Karaisal, Pancha Kavya, Neer Mor Karaisal, apart from training them in the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), Sustainable Sugarcane Initiative (SSI), Seed Treatment in groundnut and pulses and Succour Treatment in banana.

The students also organised training camps for farmers in Kottangal and Adi Annamalai villages.

They conducted rallies to spread awareness about organic farming and the ill effects of accumulating disposable plastics.
