The purpose of the camp was to create awareness about latest farming methodologies and techniques to be adopted especially during the ongoing rainy and above average monsoon season.
The SDM asked the farmers to avail advantage of useful practical tips given by the department specialists and stressed the need of innovative farming and plantation of cash rich crops as has already been successfully experimented with Saffron Plantation in Dudu Basantgarh last year. He assured that more and more awareness camps of Agriculture, Horticulture, Social Welfare, Rural Development and other line departments would be organized.
The farmers raised various important issues like lack of adequate staff, especially the post of AEO Rasli which has been lying vacant for more than a year and renovation of existing store and related infrastructure at Basantgarh.
