Organic Agriculture University To Come Up In Goa Soon
Chief Minister Pramod Sawant gave an in-principle nod to the proposal during a meeting held on Tuesday, Kavlekar, who is also the state’s agriculture minister, told PTI.
“The government has set a target of one year to set up the university, the first-of-its-kind in the state,” he said.
The varsity will focus on research and study of various organic crops suitable for the Goan soil, he said.
Kavlekar said he recently visited the Pune Agriculture College and the Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth at Rahuri in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district to seek inputs for setting up the organic agriculture university in Goa.
