He said that organic farming has emerged as a significant option in view of increasing demand for safe and healthy food and for protection of the environment from chemical fertilizers.

There are many excellent technologies available in this University which can be beneficial for private companies and progressive farmers. He urged the officials of the University to make private companies and progressive farmers aware of these technologies.
