    Agricultural varsity to set up radio stations for farmers

    By Staff

    Chandigarh, Aug 1: The Haryana Government has decided to provide a sum of Rs five crore to the Ch Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, under Agriculture Development Scheme for setting up Community Radio Stations at each Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) of the University.

    This information was given here today by the University Vice Chancellor Dr J C Katyal, while addressing the concluding function of 'One month Radio Jocky Training' jointly organised by the Directorate of Extension Education of the University and World Development Foundation.

    Dr Katyal said this type of radio station had been sep up at the University campus with its own resources and cooperation of the foundation. This radio station was likely to be functional by September.

    Terming radio as one of the most powerful medium of information, he said even though information technology had witnessed revolutionary development, radio was still popular among farmers.

    With the setting up of the Community Radio Station at the University, agriculture related information could be given to the farmers, he said.

    Financial constraints would not be allowed to hinder the Community Radio Station project, he added.

    Dr Katyal said to make the KVK radio stations more viable, a mechanism would be developed to facilitate interactions with the farmers during the broadcast of various programmes so as to redress their agriculture related problems.
