The training camp also made the farmers aware of the latest techniques that would help them to safeguard their crops from numerous pests and diseases. The experts and scientists placed significant emphasis on integrated pest and disease management as well as integrated nutrient management. These methods are essential to sustainable agriculture and farmers should adopt them. Farmers were also made aware of crop rotation which is essential in avoiding certain pests.

The farmers also received high-quality oat seeds from experts from the Haryana Agricultural University (HAU) during the session for use as cattle fodder. Oats’ high hull and fibre content make them an excellent grain for cattle feed. Oats are also good for soil health and can improve the productivity of leguminous crops.
