Dr Amit Sinha, Consultant of AFC Ltd, said, “Last 2-3 years, Covid taught us a lot. And the one thing that emerged through this is that agricultural sector is the most sustainable and supportive model. Another thing is that technology has now become really important in our country. The only problem is how to reach the audience and I think through Krishi Jagran we can overcome this. Krishi Jagran is a really big platform and they are communicating with people and reaching a big audience. And I think through this collaboration, we will be able to reach people at both national and international levels.”
