Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh declared on Thursday that seven new Krishi Vigyan Kendras would be opened in Gujarat in the next one year with a view to transferring technology from universities to the field. He made this declaration while addressing a seminar organised on the occasion of the ongoing three-day ‘Agritech Asia-2014’ exhibition in Gandhinagar.
However, he did not say in which districts they would be opened. There are already as many as 28 KVKs in the state under the supervision of different agriculture and other varsities. Stating that his ministry was working hard to realise the dream of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay to “provide a job to every hand and water to every farm’’, Singh said that the country witnessed an increase in its growth rate in the last three months and inflation had also gone down owing to the efforts of Narendra Modi government.
Chief Minister Anandi Patel said that the state had attained over 10% agriculture growth in the last 10 years by educating farmers about the latest technology through ‘Krishi Mahotsavs’.
