NAGAPATTINAM: Judicious use of water, seeds and fertilisers can go a long way in ensuring improved agricultural practices, said Collector T.Munusamy, here at a seminar on improved practices in paddy cultivation organised at the Krishi Vigyan Kendran (KVK) in Sikkal recently.
The seminar organised under the aegis of KVK, and All India Radio, Tiruchi, sought to orient farmers on techniques of paddy farming. It assumes significance with the onset of samba cultivation.
The Collector said that with the release of Mettur water in advance, farmers had the opportunity to commence works before time.
The SRI (System of Rice Intensification) method of paddy cultivation enables better productivity with limited resources, hence farmers should take to SRI farming in a big way, Mr.Munusamy said.
