Agriculture production commissioner (APC) of Nagaland Y. Kikheto Sema held a meeting with deputy commissioner Mon, agri & allied departments at the DC conference hall, Mon on December 14.

According to DIPR report, APC said that agri & allied departments were responsible to give the most of what was expected at the crucial juncture as 75% of the population were rural people engaged in agri & allied activities. He appealed to the house that the mindset of importing meat, fish etc, dependency of food from outside the state has to change as “our” land is blessed where all kinds of agricultural crops were grown. He cited an example of Sastami village under Suhrohoto in Zunheboto district who have resolved and decided not to import rice from any outside sources including the ones distributed by the Food and Civil Supplies from next year and hence requested to imbibe confidence to other villages to follow suit. 

He also visited Soil and Water Conservation office, soil testing lab in Mon and appreciated the initiatives of the department even though with a very small budget. He appealed agri & allied department to take advantage of the facilities available and make soil testing mandatory before taking up any activities in the field. He also visited integrated farm at Chinglong village under Aboi block and held interaction with the farmers there.
