Agri output increased despite COVID, says ICAR chief.
Feb 23, 2021

Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR) Director-General Trilochan Mohapatra has said that India stood second in production of fruits and vegetables in the world with 320.11 million tonnes this year.
 
'When almost all the sectors suffered due to COVID-19, there was not much impact on agriculture industry. Despite lockdown, there was a growth in agriculture production,' Mr. Mohapatra said.
 
Participating virtually in the fourth convocation of Dr. YSR Horticultural University on Monday, Mr. Mohapatra called upon students to take up research and become job-givers than job-seekers after passing out from the university.
