THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Innovative agricultural methods and results of research should reach farmers, said Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.

He was chairing the meeting of State Agriculture Development Committee here on Thursday. “Many changes have been taking place in the field of agricultural research and farm   modernisation. The benefit of these changes should fully reach the farmers. The productivity of tapioca has increased due to the efforts of Central Tuber Crops Research Institute. The production and marketing of Neera, sweet toddy, should be done in an effective way to make it beneficial for the coconut farmers,” he said.

“The function to observe Farmers Day will be held at Kozhikode on Aug 16,’’  said Agriculture Minister K P Mohanan. Ministers K C Joseph, P J Joseph, C N Balakrishnan, Manjalamkuzhi Ali and MLAs E P Jayarajan, Moyinkutty, Dominic Presentation and Jameela Prakasham attended the meeting.
