Narendra-Modi

Patna: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday urged the country’s agriculture scientists to work hard for ensuring India’s second Green Revolution.

“There is no time to further delay it. We have to brace ourselves for the second Green Revolution,” Modi said in his address at the foundation day function of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research here.

“All agriculture scientists should work jointly for the second green revolution for the country,” he told scientists who gathered here from across the country.

He said the first green revolution was for producing food grains in the country to get rid of over dependence on their import but the aim of the second green revolution would be different.

He asked the agriculture scientists to research in their labs to increase yield per acre and to connect farmers with latest scientific research.

Modi said Bihar’s fertile land was suitable for the second green revolution. “In Bihar, there is special attraction and additional power for the agriculture.”

Modi, on a day-long visit to Bihar, said organic foods and honey have big market globally and our farmers should be encouraged to produce both items to increase their earnings.
