Tomar unveils 4 new facilities at Central Arid Zone Research Institute

Narendra Singh Tomar, Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister, inaugurated four new facilities at the Central Arid Zone Research Institute (CAZRI), in Jodhpur, ‎Rajasthan‎. The institute has been rendering excellent services for more than 60 years under the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR). Union Minister of Jal Shakti, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Kailash Chaudhary were special guests on this occasion.
Tomar, in his address, said that CAZRI, an institute of excellence of the ICAR, has been doing innovations and research in agriculture for the farmers of the arid region for more than 60 years, which is an example for our desert areas as well as for the whole world. Due to the research work done by CAZRI such as dune stabilisation, sprinkler and drip irrigation system and new varieties of crops, grasses and fruits, farmers’ income is increasing. Work like solar energy, reduction in the cost of farming and livestock management by CAZRI will also be beneficial for the farmers of dry areas. Due to the new technologies and research achievements being developed by CAZRI from time to time, the institute has bagged eight out of 10 national awards of ICAR in the last six years.
The minister also inaugurated the newly constructed auditorium, agri-business nurturing centre, environment-friendly waste water treatment plant and indoor sports hall at CAZRI. He also honoured progressive farmers during the programme.
Tomar informed that in the last eight years, many schemes have been launched under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for improving agriculture, providing income support and technology support to the farmers, which will successfully help India in producing every crop and agricultural product.
