India: Experts call on promoting urban agriculture

Agricultural experts have called for promoting urban and modern agriculture for food security while mentioning that the farm sector offers a solution to the poor economic conditions of the country.

They said the agriculture sector should be focused on the export of agricultural products.

Addressing the opening ceremony of a two-day training program on hydroponics under the title of “Sustainable Food Production Under Climate Change,” Sindh Agriculture University Vice Chancellor (SAU) Dr. Fateh Marri said it would be difficult to get quick economic results from the industry and services sectors in the current situation, but through the development of the agricultural sector and modern technology, export and food security could be ensured.

He said that 90pc of water could be saved with hydroponics and modern agricultural methods, adding that urban agriculture should be adopted instead of canal agriculture.
