“Our farmers should utilise the facilities provided by the government so that they can have a good yield”- Message to farmers by Thimakapura.
He Explain the importance of biotechnology where GM Foods are modified using it.
India’s population alone is closer to 126 crores. Due to immense growth in population, the agricultural land is under threat. Very high number of farmers in India have very little or no knowledge on the use of pesticides and other chemicals used on the soil leading to a great negative consequence observed throughout the country. Therefore the solution for all this agricultural complications and threats is none other but Biotech Plants which allows for more food to be grown even in low water conditions increasing crop yields, food that can guarantee India’s food security today and in the future.
“Arrogant people who just don’t want to accept change make negative kinds of comments about biotech foods” – commented by VKT
