Indo-Polish Workshop On Science For Crop Improvement At Jagan Nath University On November 4, 2019

Indo-Polish Workshop on Science for Crop Improvement organized at Jagan Nath University on November 04, 2019 to sensitize students, faculty, farmers and delegates about the need for improving crop varieties to cope with the changing climatic and environmental conditions. The model of growth of agriculture adopted during green revolution, which is based on use of high yielding varieties under high input conditions of excessive use of irrigation and agro chemicals, have resulted into degradation of soil health, salinization and environmental issues. The workshop suggested utilizing knowledge and skills from various disciplines of life sciences, engineering and agriculture science so that well tailored varieties could be developed for various target environment. Prof. Edward Arseniuk and Dr. Dorota from National Institute of Plant Breeding, Radzikow, Poland shared their experiences about the use of science for crop improvement in Poland. Prof. R. K. Behl, Dean, Faculty of Agriculture, Prof. J.S Laura from MDU, Rohtak, Dr. O.P Bishnoi from CCSHAU, Hisar, Dr. Manjeet Singh from Starex University, Dr. Baldeep Singh from SGT, Gurugram, Dr. Nilam Chaudhary from PDM, Bahadurgarh, Dr. Seema Sonkar from CSA University, Kanpur presented their views about various issues and strategies for change in crop patterns through the application of traditional plant breeding and modern biotechnology techniques. The Vice Chancellor, Prof. H. L. Verma, while welcoming the delegates highlighted the various problems faced by the agriculture sector and emphasised that the agriculture scientists need to relook into the agriculture sector growth model. The students of agriculture science, faculty and farmers participated in the workshop.
