Dr AK Singh, NAAS secretary and ex-VC Rajmata Scindia Agricultural University, Gwalior, welcomed the participants and briefed the objectives of the session. Dr Mohapatra emphasised the importance of subject on agriculture when most of the people are rushing towards cities for their livelihood and better life-expectations. “We are facing scarcity of water at one hand and generating about 61,754 million liter of sewage water per day, which is not utilised economically,” he added. Dr JC Dagar, former ADG, ICAR, and convener of the session who hails from Karnal, emphasised that instead of facing problems of disposal causing serious land, water, air and food pollution, water can be judiciously used in innovative horticulture, agro-forestry, development of lawns/gardens/green-belts/landscapes, vertical farming, dairy and poultry units in peri-urban areas, rooftop cultivation, growing avenue trees and ornamental plants in open spaces, cultivation of aromatic and ornamental plants and aqua-culture by developing low-cost technologies.
