Plans periodicals

By reading the periodicals, farmers will become wiser with respect to the use of chemicals and pesticides.

The department has made the periodicals available at various pesticides, fertilisers and seed shops in the district. Besides, it has approached all agricultural cooperative societies in the district to promote the study material among the farming community.

Farmers tell shopkeepers about the kind of pests they are having to deal with in their fields, and based on this the dealers suggest them pesticides.

By reading the material published by the PAU, the farmers would become wiser with respect to the use of chemicals and pesticides. It would help them save money and protect ecology, said Harnek Singh Rode, district Chief Agriculture Officer.
