While interacting with the employees at KJ Choupal, the agriculture expert talked about the Technology Transfer Mechanism and the important role it plays in the farming sector. It means the transfer and/or exchange of technology with industry, state and local governments, academia, and other federal agencies. Capturing the best information from Research Organizations and communicating the same thing to the farmers through which they try, learn, adopt and make the best use of it.

Dr Sadamate shared his views and had a conversation with the KJ Team.

At the same time, farmers give feedback either positive or negative about how the information provided by the researchers helped them in their field. Therefore, there’s a constant give and take and constant interaction between them.

He also mentioned that KVK is also a great source of help to farmers as they provide important information about the latest technology and new or improved varieties of crops.

He further stated how agriculture is considered to be only related to crop production and field work but instead it is a broad industry that contains horticulture, dairy, poultry, fishery, sericulture and so on.   

Another point he mentioned was that youth is focusing on agribusiness and start-ups which gives more relevance to agriculture sector and hence will also impact the economy in a positive way.
