The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), Agricultural Technology Application Research Institute (ATARI), Kolkata, and the National Institute of Homoeopathy (NIH) under the Ministry of Ayush, Kolkata, have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). This collaboration aims to leverage homeopathic medicine derived from medicinal plants to enhance the agriculture and animal husbandry sectors, promoting better quality food and more nutritious crops. The NIH, through welfare medicinal camps, will collect vital health-related data in rural areas, laying the groundwork for future health management strategies.

Fostering Agriculture with Homeopathic Solutions

ICAR-ATARI and NIH have come together with a shared vision of utilising homeopathic medicine to benefit the agriculture and animal husbandry sectors. This collaboration aims to enhance the quality of food and improve the nutritional value of crops.

Health Data for Rural Strategies

The NIH, in tandem with ICAR-ATARI, will conduct welfare medicinal camps across various Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs), generating crucial health-related data. This data will play a pivotal role in formulating future health management strategies, particularly targeting the well-being of the peasantry in rural areas.

MoU Signing Ceremony

The MoU was formally signed by Dr Pradip Dey, Director of ICAR-ATARI, Kolkata, and Dr Subhas Singh, Director of NIH. The event, attended by Dr Kumaravel V, Head of the Department of Pathology at NIH, and other institute officials, marks a crucial step towards the collaborative efforts in the development of homeopathic solutions for agriculture and rural health.

The collaboration between ICAR-ATARI and NIH holds promise for a healthier and more sustainable future in agriculture, blending traditional homeopathic wisdom with modern agricultural practices. As the Ministry of Ayush spearheads initiatives for holistic health, this partnership aligns with its vision. The role of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) and its institutes, such as ICAR-ATARI, in fostering such collaborations is crucial for driving innovation in the agriculture sector. As the NIH organises welfare medicinal camps and gathers health data, the Ministry of Ayush underscores its commitment to holistic well-being, intertwining traditional medicine and modern agricultural practices.
