Many countries shared knowledge in the field of agriculture and horticulture at the International Exhibition on Agriculture and Horticulture Technology “UP Agri-Horti Tech” held yesterday in Saifai. European countries including France, Netherlands, Italy and Israel took part in Uttar Pradesh Agri-Horti Tech to discuss and share knowledge in the field of agriculture and horticulture.
On this two-day event, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav stressed on apprising the farmers with the new techniques and advancements so that there is no “dearth of food grains” in the country. “Everything from eating habits to mode of conveyance is changing and this requires changing the mind-set as well for taking care of the future,” Yadav said while inaugurating the Uttar Pradesh Agri Horti Tech organised jointly by state government and PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Radeecal Communications in Saifai.
“The event aims at bringing together constituents of agriculture and allied industry like horticulture, dairy, livestock, poultry and food technology under one roof to share information and technology”, Agriculture Production Commissioner (APC) Pravir Kumar said.
On asking the need for organising such an event here, Yadav said that his efforts have always been to disseminate the knowledge to farmers along with new methods of farming. Uttar Pradesh Agri-Horti Tech will not only cater to agriculture and horticulture sector but will also feature two more concurrent events – livestock and poultry expo – which was an international event on dairy livestock and poultry technology.
