Disha Agricultural Camp – 2014
Preface of Disha Agricultural Camp:
Agriculture, for decades, had been associated with the production of basic food crops. Agriculture and farming were synonymous so long as farming was not commercialized. But as the process of economic development accelerated, many more other occupations allied to farming came to be recognized as a part of agriculture.
At present, Agriculture besides farming includes forestry, fruit cultivation, dairy, poultry, mushroom, bee keeping, arbitrary, etc. Today, marketing, processing, distribution of agricultural products etc. are all accepted as a part of modern agriculture.
The Disha Agricultural camp aims to help teens learn the importance of Agriculture in our Country which plays a basic & vital role in every citizen’s health.
- To make the teens understand the importance of Agriculture and learn the basics in farming.
