Vice President Venkaiah Naidu stresses need for structural changes in Agriculture

@VPSecretariat
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today stressed the need for structural changes in Agriculture to achieve home grown food security and promote rural employment.
 
He was addressing students, teachers and agricultural scientists, at the VNR Vigyan Jyothi Institute of Engineering and Technology on the outskirts of Hyderabad after inaugurating Yogayya Naidu building on the institute's campus a short while ago.
 
Speaking on the occasion, he advocated for diversification of farming systems and value addition to primary agriculture products through improved post-harvest technology.
 
He said small-scale and village industries should be focussed  for up-gradation of both technology and marketing skills by rural youth. He also stressed on the need for greater synergy between the private, public and co-operative sectors to create more avenues for skilled jobs in the villages.
