On this occasion, Padmashree scientist Dr. V.P. Singh (father of Basmati rice) told that we should increase the quality of agricultural produce to increase our income and it is very appropriate to know the right time of sowing and harvesting and a good yield of paddy. It is necessary to grow good quality seeds to get good yield and good price. In today's time, there are many disease free and pest free varieties of paddy available in the market and whose price in the market is very good, so it is necessary for us to plant those seeds in the field to increase our income.

Speaking on the occasion, Dharmendra Malik, General Secretary, National Spokesperson, Bharatiya Kisan Union (Apolitical) said that the farmers of our Muzaffarnagar district have to go to other states to sell their produce, due to which they can exchange their agricultural produce in a proper and timely manner. Can't happen. He said that APEDA is also doing the work of training the farmers through the Horticulture Department, so that the farmers can increase their yield according to the standards of export. There is a lot of potential for this in district Muzaffarnagar. In a meeting held recently in the presence of District Magistrate Umesh Mishra in Bijnor district of western Uttar Pradesh, an MoU (memorandum) of Rs 150 crore between two jaggery export companies (Jaggery Export Company Hindustan Agro Ltd. and Healthmist Oil and Food Private Limited) and 40 farmers. of understanding) is signed. Countries like America, France, Iran, UK, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Kuwait are buying jaggery. He suggested that some such effort should be done in Muzaffarnagar district also.

Giving information about the national seminar, Dr. Ashok Kumar, the coordinator of the national seminar and the director of Shri Ram College, said that this seminar was jointly organized by Shri Ram Group of Colleges and Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority "For promotion of agricultural exports from Muzaffarnagar". A National Seminar was organized on the topic "Capacity Building Programme". He said that during the program to make the farmer of Muzaffarnagar financially empowered and quality production and export of Mbasmati rice, jaggery, fruits-vegetables and flowers etc. He informed that as per the agreement between APEDA and Small Farmers Agribusiness Association (THB), SFAC organizes small and marginal farmers, Farmer Interest Groups, Farmer Producer Organizations and Farmer Producer Company and helps small and marginal farmers Provides a platform for access and affordable availability of agricultural inputs. He said that the experts present in the seminar demanded that the above facility should be started in Muzaffarnagar district also. He said that in the one-day seminar it was discussed that with the objective of promoting export of dairy products by the Central Government, while expanding the scope of Transport and Marketing Assistance (TMA) scheme for some specific agricultural products, dairy products should also be included in this. Therefore, there is immense potential in export of dairy business and product in western Uttar Pradesh. It is not possible to promote organic farming in the country without the cooperation of cooperatives and dairies, so the association of farmers' production organizations (FPOs) with export oriented food parks for the production of dairy products is favorable to the World Trade Organization. To increase exports, development of Dairy Export Zone (DEZ) and Organic Products Export Zone (OPEZ) needs to be considered. Through the One District One Product scheme, all the districts of Uttar Pradesh will have their own product, which will become the identity of that district. Today is the time of value addition, that is, by adding some other things to your product, its quality has to be improved manifold, due to which the demand increases. According to the Indian Sugarcane Research Institute, Lucknow, both the quantity and quality of jaggery can be increased by setting up a modern jaggery unit. It gets better price in the market.

Giving information, he said that it was informed in the seminar that one district for one product has been approved by the Union Ministry of Food Processing Industries. And through these incubation centers, new entrepreneurs will get various types of training facilities and other help.New changes are being made to double the income of farmers in India. Meanwhile, farmers are also being encouraged to cultivate expensive and cash crops, because these crops are also in high demand and price in the market. Black guava has joined such an expensive and cash crop.It was also discussed in the seminar that western Uttar Pradesh can become a region for agricultural exports in the field of dairy products, processed fruits and vegetables, maize and maize products, basmati rice, honey, fresh vegetables and fruits. Vegetables like potatoes, okra, peas, cabbage, English carrots, green peas, beans, tomatoes are currently being traded in the local mandis and surrounding states in this area, which need to be introduced in the export market. The cargo center at the international airport is close to this area, so there is a high potential for export of agricultural products.With the continuation of several concrete measures taken by the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) in the Varanasi region of Uttar Pradesh, the process of making the project 'Varanasi an Agri Export Hub' has started yielding good results. Huh. The role of APEDA should increase in western Uttar Pradesh.Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently inaugurated a Rs 140 crore plant of Mother Dairy with a capacity to process 48 tonnes of potatoes per day, in this processing plant in Gujarat, in addition to frozen-french-fry, frozen chips, aloo utikki, Burger patties etc. are produced. This year Mother Dairy has procured about 10,000 tonnes of potatoes under the contract with the farmers of the area, this will benefit the farmers there.

The second session of the seminar was a technical session in which mainly Dr. Gaje Singh, Department of Entomology, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University, Meerut and Dr. Priyanka Singh Scientific Sugarcane Research Institute, Lucknow provided good quality agricultural produce to the farmers as well as in the yield. It was told about the increase and earlier crops were grown on the basis of organic farming, due to which the protection of many diseases and the quality of agricultural products was maintained completely, but in today's time, along with chemical farming, agricultural products are being grown. The quality is also deteriorating significantly. Due to which their price is not getting right in the market.On this occasion, Dr. K.P. Singh, Retired, General Manager, Bajaj Sugar Mills and Chief Executive Officer Hans Heritage Industries said that we should check the quality of our farms to increase the quality of the jaggery and ensure proper presence of all the micro-elements inside the marda. And the deficiency of the element which we are seeing inside the man should be filled in an organic way. If possible, control of pests and diseases should be done organically only.At the end of the program, Dr. SC Kulshrestha, Chairman, Shri Ram Group of Colleges gave a vote of thanks to all the farmers present in the program and in future also such programs will be organized by the Agriculture Department of Shri Ram College, Muzaffarnagar.Dr. Prerna Mittal, Principal Shri Ram College, Muzaffarnagar, Nishant Rathi, Dean Computer Applications, Dr. Vineet Sharma, IQAC Coordinator, Dr. Naeem, Head of Department, Department of Agricultural Sciences, Dr. Ravi Gautam, Head of Department, Journalism and Mass Communication, Dr. Vikrant, in making the program a success.
