Ahmadabad: Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Radha Mohan Singh on Friday said today’s farmers cannot be self reliant only by using old farm techniques, because agriculture inputs are costly that is why it is necessary that our farmers should use low-cost agriculture technology to get more crop yield and increase their income.

Inaugurating the AMATHON 2016, a three-day international agriculture trade summit at IIM here, Singh said, “Today’s agriculture is not only a source of livelihood, but leading to job or entrepreneurship development. Today’s farmers cannot be self reliant only by using old farm techniques, because Agri inputs are costly and in order to use new Agriculture technologies, there is necessity of more investment. That is why, it is necessary that our farmers should use low cost based agriculture technology to get more crop yield and increase their income so that the dreams of our Prime minister ‘Jai Kisan Jai Vigyan’ can be fulfilled.
