farmerAs part of its efforts to update farmers on farming schemes, training and support, the West Bengal Government is working on a plan to set up innovation centers in 19 districts.

The pilot project is expected to be launched in Burdwan.

This information was shared by Pradip Mazumder, Advisor on Agriculture and Allied Sectors to the Chief Minister of West Bengal at the stakeholders’ meet organised coinciding with the second Krishi Unnayan Mela, a three-day Agricultural Exhibition & Conference organised by CII in association with Department of Agriculture, Government of West Bengal at the Utsav Maidan.

The meet, where senior government officials, banks, corporate and major farm mechanisation companies came under one roof, turned out to be a lively forum of brainstorming session for preparing a roadmap on how farmers in the state can improve productivity.

Subjects such as farm mechanisation and the necessity of after sales support for the farmers from the manufacturers, government subsidy and knowledge support for farmers for better decision making on product purchase were also discussed.
