NABARD Foundation Day to be celebrated on Jul 12

Panaji, Jul 11 (UNI) Completing 36 years of yeomen service to the nation, NABARD will celebrate 37th Foundation Day on July 12, 2018.
On the eve of the celebration, Kamakshi S Pai, General Manager / Officer-in-Charge, NABARD, Goa Regional Office, said NABARD intended to demonstrate integrated farming system for increasing farmers’ income.
Addressing Regional Advisory Group on the eve of NABARD’s 37th Foundation Day and listing out NABARD’s priorities in the year ahead, she she said NABARD was now focusing on Collectivization and market linkages through farmer producer organizations.
Supporting projects for adapting to the impact of climate change, setting up of seed bank, conservation of biodiversity, making Goa clean through projects such as solid waste treatment plant and construction of individual sanitary toilets, digitization of Self Help Groups, developing Self Help Groups as Community Based Organisations and sectoral development through Area Development Schemes were the other thrust areas for NABARD. She said that NABARD rededicated itself for the cause of rural development with interventions in all the thrust areas.
S T Kannan, GM, RBI, released a booklet on ‘Role of NABARD in Goa 2016-18’ and appreciated the contribution of NABARD in agriculture and rural development as also infrastructure development, besides financial inclusion initiatives.
N Narayana Raju, AGM, NABARD, introduced the guest speakers and coordinated the event. Ajit Trikannad, Chairman and CEO of Vinyas Hydro Technologies Ltd, made a presentation of their devices that mimic nature and once the water passes through the devices, which force water to move in vortex, it regains its original molecular structure. The structured water helps in improving crop productivity and crop quality, animal health and human health. Kavita Mishra, a progressive farmer and national award winner from Kavital, Raichur district, Karnataka, shared her experience with Integrated Farming System.
She said her farm has over 8,000 various species of plants, comprising sandalwood, pomegranate, mango, musambi, sitaphal, guava, lemon, teak, etc. She has 15 indigenous cows, ten sheep and some poultry birds, helping her in preparing jeevamrut for fertigating her farm. She thus reaps income
daily, and higher levels of income over long durations by getting annual income from fruit bearing trees and substantial income over a period of 15-20 years from sandalwood and other trees. She said her eight acre farm was valued at Rs 100 crore today.
Heads of line departments, banks, development institutions, non-government organisations and a few farmers deliberated on the suggestions made by the guest speakers and drew up strategies for adopting their ideas.
