Farmers urged to transform themselves into agri-entrepreneurs

By Correspondent

MANGALDAI, Nov 2 - �As you are on the threshold of completing your degree course from the Assam Agricultural University (AAU), you all have a lot of responsibility to make changes in the field of agriculture�.

�Assam is an agriculture-based State and the farmers are yet to get themselves acquainted with the latest technical knowhow, due to which a majority of the villagers still adopt the traditional method of agriculture with single cropping system�.

�It is high time that young people like you should come forward to change the mindset of the farmers and to transform the villagers into agri-entrepreneurs,� observed Darrang Deputy Commissioner Ashok Kumar Barman.

He was talking to a group of 32 final year Agri B Sc students of three agriculture colleges under AAU who had been in the district for the last three months while participating in the Rural Agricultural Work Experience Programme (RAWEP) in collaboration with the Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) of Darrang and sponsored by AAU, Jorhat.

This group of 18 boys and 14 girls from three agriculture colleges, namely Dhubri, Biswanath Chariali and AAU campus of Jorhat as part of this RAWEP are stated to be at the fag end of their programme. Spending their time in small groups in the residences of villagers at Baneikuchi, Senapatipara, Gargari and Niz Sarabari of the district, they exchanged scientific views on new technological ideas with the villagers.

Participating in the function, Darrang Superintendent of Police Sreejith Thiraviam advised the visiting students to devote their time for promotion of agriculture in the State so that maximum number of people from the younger generation could be motivated to become agri �entrepreneurs as it is not possible for everyone to get a Government job.

He also apprised the inquisitive students about his struggle to crack the UPSC. Senior journalist Bhargab Kumar Das while taking part in the interaction shed light on the history of agricultural practices in the district and spoke on the significance of the historic �Krishak Vidroh� at Pothorughat in Darrang on January 28, 1894.
