Hisar. At the Kisan Mela organized by Haryana Agricultural University, the Minister of Agriculture and Welfare called upon the farmers to diversify agriculture instead of traditional farming.

On Tuesday, at the inauguration of the fair, Minister JP Dalal called upon the scientists of the university to develop such improved varieties of seeds and techniques keeping the farmer in mind, so that the income of the farmer can be increased.
He said that many times small farmers are not able to bear the expenses of modern techniques and machineries, so they should form farmers groups and do farming so that they can get more benefits. Apart from this, subsidies are being provided by the government on packaging, storage and poly houses etc. for the farmers, so that the economic condition of the farmer can be strengthened.
