In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today called for replication of the success stories of innovative and progressive farmers in J&K through transmission of ideas and knowledge sharing for transforming agriculture & allied sectors and for realizing the goal of doubling farmers’ income. He was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of a two-day Innovative Farmers Conference on Farmer-Led Innovations for Enhancing Farm Income at SKUAST, Jammu organized to harness first-hand experiences of innovative farmers.
 
On the occasion, the LG felicitated five Padma Shri awardee farmers including Bharat Bhushan Tyagi, Kanwal Singh Chouhan, Sultan Singh, Ram Sharan Verma and Chander Shekhar Singh and other innovative farmers. Mr Sinha termed the innovative farmers as key change-makers in agricultural development and a motivating force for the whole farming community. He also urged them to disseminate their technical know-how for further emulation by farmers to multiply their income. More than 100 prominent progressive farmers from J&K, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh are participating in the conference.
 
The LG underscored the significance of promoting best practices, sharing of innovative ideas and experiences among farmers and said that the Conference would provide an exclusive platform to farmers to exchange ideas and gain new knowledge in farming. He observed that seamless transfer of technology from universities to farmers is imperative for introducing the farmers with innovative ways of farming.
 
For providing a substantial increase in farmers’ income, the LG called for developing strategies and credible mechanisms for upscaling of farmers-led innovations and further strengthening the spirit of 'Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat' and making J&K Atmanirbhar in the agriculture sector.
