CM inaugurates 41st Convention of Vice Chancellors of Agricultural Universities of India at Ahmedabad

Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Vijay Rupani inaugurated 41st convention of vice chancellors from agriculture universities running across the nation in presence of Union Minister of State for Agriculture Ministry Shri Purushottam Rupala at Ahmedabad. This two day convention began at Nirma University of Ahmedabad with subject of ‘Food for health under climate change’ sponsored by Indian Agriculture Universities Association.

CM Shri Rupani considered the conference as appropriate in present era and said that the idea of climate change has been involved since centuries in Indian culture. The countries which have done maximum damage in environment are now suggesting us about its seriousness. We judged the right direction under leadership of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi by rational usage of natural resources along with taking remedial measures against climate change.

He added that along with agriculture growth rate, Gujarat has also worried for poor farmers and villagers and has changed the mindsets with modern aspects of the rural economy and farmer power through soil health-card and Krushi Mahotsav. He further added that Gujarat has strengthened the farmers by joining agriculture with rural economy – rural development.

CM Shri Rupani released the book named “Drought The Way Forward” which was jointly prepared by four state agriculture universities and Vice Chancellors of Kamdhenu animal husbandry University.

said that usually climate change affects agriculture & agriculture produces. At present 259 MT grain is being produced. But since the population is increasing, till year 2030 our requirements will reach to 360 million tonne grains. Since the reduction in agriculture land, this convention will be useful to think about how to get more production from less land.

On this occasion, Union Minister of State for Agriculture Ministry Shri Parosottambhai Rupala, State Agriculture Minister Shri Chimanbhai Sapriya, Animal Husbandry Minister Shri Babubhai Bokhiriya, Vice President of IAUA Dr. K. M.
