Importance of organic farming stressed



Vice-Chancellor of the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Dr S A Patil said on Saturday that the State government should bring in a legislation on the organic farming, to make ryots adopt this system.

He was addressing the gathering after inaugurating the conference on Organic Farming organised to mark the 154th jatra mahotsava at the Annadaneshwar Math in Halakere near here.

He noted that the organic farming can be materialised only by bringing a legislation. Farmers would develop interest on the organic farming if the same was introduced as syllabus in schools.

Dr Patil stated that the university had decided to bring out a publication on the experiences of the organic farming cultivators. Hence, they should send write-ups regarding their experiences to the university.

Announcing projects of the university, he said that it had planned to construct a Raitha Bhavan with an estimated cost of over Rs 5 crores.

While the university has already spent half of the amount, the elected representatives could prevail upon the State government to bear rest of the money.

Sri Shivamuthy Shivacharya Swamiji of the Taralabalu Bruhanmath of Sirigere said that all mutts in the State had agricultural background. One could come across agricultural activities along with spiritualism in those maths.
Sri Gurisidda Rajayogindra Swamiji of the Mooru Savira Mutt, Hubli spoke. Organic farming cultivators and noted persons were felicitated.

Former MP R S Patil, legislators’ Veeranna Mattigatti, Doddanagoudar, S S Patil, Rajashekar Sindhur, Organic farming expert D D Bharamagoudar and others pontiffs were present.

Series of discourse
A one month long discourse series, to mark the Belli Rathotsava began in the presence of Shivaratri Deshikendra Swamiji of Suttur muth, Mysore. Mundargi Sansthan seer Annadana Swamiji and Budeeshwara Swamiji of Hosalli spoke.
Mr Umesh Achar, the sculptor of the silver chariot from Udupi was awarded with ‘Karakushala Brahma’ title.
