JAMMU: Union minister of state for science & technology Jitendra Singh on Sunday said the central government is giving special impetus to agriculture startups and that India is experiencing a golden period of agriculture under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Attending the concluding ceremony of five-day Northern India Regional Agriculture Fair-2021 at SKUAST Jammu, the minister said, “This is the golden period of agriculture in India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and technological interventions, research and innovation in agriculture under his leadership will double the farmers’ income by 2022.”
Singh said that the PM’s seriousness towards agriculture development in India can be judged from the fact that two new ministries, Jal Shakti and skill development & entrepreneurship, have specially been created to promote agriculture.
Singh said that agriculture and farm production has been revolutionised in India under the current government, which is evident from various initiatives taken for the welfare of farmers like the soil health card, neem-coated urea, PM Fasal Bima Yojana, PM Kissan Sammaan, e-Nam, etc. Enumerating the development initiatives taken in J&K vis-à-vis agriculture and innovation, Singh said that the establishment of north India’s first biotechnology park, two high-seed processing plants at Kathua, and launch of India’s first Aroma Mission will open new vistas of growth, opportunities and innovation in agriculture in Jammu.
Speaking to farmers present on the occasion, Singh emphasized that a farmer can now engage in multiple activities depending upon his capacity and resources. He maintained that the government is facilitating farmers in every way possible to achieve financial prosperity. The minister further said that the proactive outreach for start-ups is the need of the hour to get the best minds for promotion of products at national and international level.
