The university and Sresta Natural would work together on research, training, innovation and education of students in organic and natural agricultural products. Likewise, the pact with Wevio Global would help the university to work on raising awareness of agricultural mechanization for small and marginal farmers.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Praveen Rao said that the demand for natural and organic agricultural products was increasing with changing food consumption patterns. Organic and natural farming practices are essential for sustainable agriculture and they would contribute to soil degradation and highlighted the need to develop farming practices to conserve soil nutrition.
