Gautam Bhagwati, Scientist KVK, Gossaigaon while addressing the interactive session with BTR CEM Promod Boro and other dignitaries present elaborated in detail through projector step by step about how the farmers can move forward and avail benefits by using scientific methods to increase production in the field of farming.
After prolonged discussion with the scientists and Researchers of KVK, Gossaigaon, BTR CEM Promod Boro shared his own experiences of farming at home and the benefits that he availed from it. He urged the scientists to take the research to the middle of the field rather than being limited to KVK alone for the greater interest of society.
In an interview with reporters, Pramod Boro avowed that the BTAD area is a region that depends entirely on agriculture. Even now most of the people of BTAD depend on agriculture to make their livelihood but due to the inability of the farmers to do agricultural work in a scientific manner, they are not able to earn well by increasing production and not being able to meet the demands of the market. In order to move forward economically, farmers have to be trained and produced scientifically as per the demands of the market. Stating that KVK has excelled in agricultural production through research in Bodoland, the BTR chief said that since KVK is researched on agricultural production, in such a case, if the Department of Agriculture works jointly in the field with KVK, the production will be greatly increased and there will be economic development in the society.
