Farmers in Mahottari elated after establishment of Agriculture Knowledge Centre


MAHOTTARI – Local farmers in Mahottari have been elated with joy following the establishment and subsequent operation of an Agriculture Knowledge Centre at the district headquarters.

Farmers have been elated with the hopes that the centre will provide them with necessary inputs and aid in their farming activities. The centre, established at Jaleswar in the third week of October, is largely expected to directly coordinate the needs of the agriculture sector in the district.

“We were reeling under confusion during the past three years since the termination of the District Agriculture Development Office”, said frontline farmer Satyanarayan Yadav, a local of Bhangaha municipality-4. He further said that the establishment of the knowledge centre has enhanced their hope to receive consultation service, technical advice and subsidies in a timely manner.

The government had brought into operation the agro knowledge centre as a means to look after two districts following the dismantlement of the previous mechanism of the district agriculture development. With this, four agro knowledge centres have been set up in State 2 while it has been put in place in Malangawa for Mahottari and Sarlahi districts.

The new mechanism of agriculture knowledge centre will hopefully take initiatives to guide farmers and improve farming in all 15 local levels of the districts, said Arun Singh Kusuwaha, a farmer of Batauwabasti in the Gaushala municipality.
