Mysuru, October 4:- A workshop on ‘Agricultural plan for post-monsoon’ was organised at SJCE Auditorium in the city on Tuesday.
Minister for Agriculture Krishna Byre Gowda inaugurated the workshop for agriculture officers.
“Farmers are staying away from agriculture. Farms are drying up. Agriculture officers have to visit farmers and create awareness among them. They should be provided with ideas for alternative crops,” he said.
“Farmers should not lose hope. Once they give up hope, it is very difficult to rebuild. These works have to be done from ground level,” the minister advised.
Commissioner of Agriculture Department Dr Satish, Srinivas and other officials were present.
