He told that the agriculture department along with others like Horticulture, Dairy, Animal Husbandry, Fishery, Irrigation, Forest, Markfed and others would prepare joint strategies for ensuring the prosperity of the farmers in the district. 

 

Dr Singh also asked the officials to keep a close vigil on the wheat crop fields as the weather conditions are suitable for the yellow rust disease and asked the peasants about that they must spray their wheat crop with 200 ml per acre propiconazole after noticing yellow coloured, powdery linear stripes on the wheat crop leaves.
