Take up campaign to impart info on climate change to farmers: PM


PRIME MINISTER Narendra Modi on Tuesday called upon academicians, agricultural scientists and institutions to start a campaign to impart information to farmers on climate change, which is a huge challenge for agriculture.

Launching 35 crop varieties with special traits to address climate change and malnutrition, the Prime Minister said, “Climate change is a huge challenge not only for agriculture, but for our entire ecosystem. Climate change greatly affects our fish production, animal health and productivity.” Due to climate change, new types of pests, diseases, epidemics are emerging, which not only pose a threat to people, but also affect livestock and crops, he said. Intensive and continued research on these aspects is necessary, he said, adding that when science, government and society work together, results are better.
