TOG News Service, BENGALURU, FEB 13, 2018: IN light of the celebration of Indo-Russian diplomatic relations, the Union Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare today organized an India-Russia Agriculture Business Summit in New Delhi. This conference saw attendance by business leaders from both nations engaged in the agriculture sector, and was aimed at increasing the exchange of expertise to further business ties between the two nations. Moreover, a celebration of 70 years of Agricultural Relationship is also scheduled to be held tomorrow in Suratgarh, Rajasthan.

The conference was addressed by the Union Minister for Agriculture, Mr Gajendra Shekhawat and his Russian counterpart, Mr Sergey Beletskiy, and involved presentations from both countries highlighting trade opportunities in agriculture. Moreover, discussions were held on areas for possible collaboration and trade, including agriculture machinery, sanitary and phytosanitary measures (both plants and animals), agriculture education and biotechnology, fishery and sea products (including feeding, care and processing) and confectionery, bakery, dry fruits and coconut products. These discussions were facilitated by officers of Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare and Ministry of Food Processing Industries.

The Russian and Indian delegations would be visiting the Central State Farm (CSF) in Suratgarh, Rajasthan tomorrow. This farm was set up in 1956 with assistance from the erstwhile Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).  Mr Singh and his Russian counterpart would then inaugurate the Russian Machinery Museum, address a gathering of farmers in which the veterans of the farm would be facilitated, and also visit Cattle Breeding Centre. It may be noted that Russian scientists helped in laying the foundation of agriculture in the deserts of Thar, which brought about a change in the agriculture farming in nearby areas including fringe area of Punjab.
