Ludhiana, June 8
A field day on “resource conservation technologies” was organised by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Noormahal.

Technology regarding leaf colour chart, tensiometer and laser land leveler were discussed and demonstrated to nearly 200 farmers of the area.

N.S. Malhi, director of extension education, PAU, was the chief guest.

Stressing on the need to check deteriorating environmental condition, he called upon the farmers for judicious use of natural resources.

Kuldeep Singh, deputy director, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Noormahal, said these instruments facilitated judicious utilisation of water and other initial inputs of agriculture. To cut down the expenses and to avoid the scarcity of water in near future, such instruments and implements were beneficial.

A team from PAU was also present. Team leader Thakur Singh elaborated on how 25 per cent of water could be saved by using laser leveler.

While addressing the farmers, Jaskaran Singh laid emphasis on the cooperative basis for farming. He said this was required because a major share of machinery in Punjab remained underutilised throughout the year.

Leaf colour charts were given to life members on the occasion.
