Aiming at refreshing the knowledge of scientists serving at various Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) of Himachal Pradesh, a three-day training programme concluded on the campus of Dr YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry (UHF), Nauni.
As many as 25 scientists representing KVKs located in various districts of Himachal Pradesh attended the training.
The Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR) sponsored programme was organised by the UHF's Directorate of Extension Education. The theme of the training was 'Promotion of Farmers Income through Scientific Interventions'.
Training coordinator and UHF's Joint Director (Communications) Dr R K Thakur said that the idea behind the training was to refresh and enhance the expertise of the scientists working at the various KVKs of the state. The programme focussed on the promotion of farmers' income through scientific interventions, which is also an important part of the central government's goal of doubling farmers' income by the year 2022.
"The scientists of the KVKs are an integral part of the agricultural activities undertaken by the farmers and are the first touch points for agriculturists of any particular area. So by enhancing the expertise of these scientists, we aim to reach our farmers with the latest technological and scientific interventions in the agricultural an horticultural sector", Dr Thakur said.
