OB Bureau

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday called upon the farmers to adopt the latest technology and go for crop diversification to boost personal income and contribute to Odisha’s growth.

Inaugurating the 3-day Krushi Odisha-2023 at the Baramunda Ground in Bhubaneswar, Naveen said new technology can lead to development of the agriculture sector and the farmers should take advantage of it.

“Odisha has become a leading state in the field of agriculture. From a food-deficient state, we have become a surplus state in food grains and are supplying rice to the public distribution system of the entire country. The development of agriculture and farmers has always topped the agenda of my government,” he said.

“The KALIA scheme has provided income security to the farmers. Special programmes like Panas (jackfruit) Mission and Chhatu (mushroom) Mission are being undertaken to better the income of farmers. Our Millet Mission has drawn the attention of the country as well as world,” he added.

Agriculture Minister Ranendra Pratap Swain also spoke on the occasion. The event, organised by Agriculture and Farmers’ Empowerment department, will continue till February 18. The theme of this year’s event is “Emerging Technology in Agriculture”.
