Taking steps for the development of agriculture in Tripura, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Ratan Lal Nath has announced the adoption of Israeli technology to boost agricultural productivity. Speaking at the inauguration of the Center of Excellence for Vegetables, Nath explained that this initiative is aimed at providing local farmers with the knowledge and tools needed to enhance their agricultural practices.

“The technology we are implementing here has been developed in Israel. Our agricultural scientists have customized it to suit the unique agro-climatic conditions of our state,” Minister Nath stated. This adaptation is expected to lead to higher crop yields and improved agricultural practices.

Minister Nath expressed optimism about the impact of this technology transfer on the agricultural sector. He highlighted that some districts in the state, such as South Tripura, Sepahijala, and Gomati, are already self-sufficient in agriculture, producing enough vegetables and food grains to meet local demand. He emphasized that this innovation could potentially pave the way for agricultural exports from Tripura.

Another noteworthy development is the introduction of soilless production of seeds and saplings in the state. Minister Nath pointed out the advantages of this technique, stating, “Soilless production reduces the risk of diseases, infections, and insect threats that seeds are susceptible to when grown in soil. Additionally, the yield is significantly higher.” To support local farmers, the government plans to make these high-yielding seeds and saplings available at subsidized rates, initially priced at just two rupees per piece.

Talking about future prospects, Minister Nath unveiled plans for the state’s agricultural sector. “We intend to establish several more centers of excellence for various crops, combining advanced technology with the hard work of our farmers. This synergy has the potential to revolutionize agriculture across the state.” He revealed plans for the creation of similar centers for scented lemon, banana, tomato, and other crops in different regions of Tripura, with the aim of promoting scientific agriculture throughout the state.

This collaboration with Israeli technology, along with the expansion of centers of excellence, marks a promising step forward in the journey to transform agriculture in Tripura. With the government’s commitment to innovation and support for local farmers, the state is poised to experience agricultural renaissance.
