Grow Fruits and Vegetables and make profit in agriculture

Udupi, 11 July 2011: Paddy farmers have been facing various problems such as economic loss and shortage of labour and therefore they have kept the land unused. But the same farmers should make profit by growing fruits and vegetables, said District Minister Dr. V. S. Acharya. He was speaking upon inauguration of an agricultural training program at Udupi Taluk Panchayath on Saturday.

The program was jointly organized by Karnataka Agriculture Maha Mandala, D.K. – Udupi District Hapcams and other Organizations. Harvesting of the crop, marketing training and also distribution of seeds were part of this program. Dr. Acharya said that, India is the 2nd largest in growing fruits and vegitables, but still the farmers are not making profit out of it. It is because the farmers have failed in protecting, preserving, yielding technologies of the fruits and vegetables. So they need to think seriously about this, he said.
