A field day on “Happy seeder sown wheat” was organised by the Farm Advisory Service Centre (FASC), Tarn Taran, at Wara Sher Singh village on Thurdsay. Dr Parminder Kaur said in collaboration with the teams from the PAU, Ludhiana, and allied departments, the field day was held to promote use of happy seeder to avoid stubble-burning.

“Around 150 farmers participated in the field day. The farmers were informed about happy seeder, which creates complete inter-row mulch in pressed form simultaneously along with sowing of wheat with more stability and least vibration in standing stubble,” she said.

Dr Parminder started the technical session by delivering lecture on disease management in wheat. Dr Paramjit Singh, Director, USF, Kapurthala, delivered a lecture on insect pest manangement in wheat crop and laid emphasis to adopt proper application technology of the pesticides.

Meanwhile, many farmers also shared their experience on happy seeder. Vote of thanks was given by Dr Savreet Khehra.
