President Pranab Mukherjee will visit Bihar in the first week of October to launch a road map on agriculture prepared by the state government, an official said Thursday.

Mukherjee will visit Bihar on an invitation by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

"During his visit, the president will launch a road map on agriculture and some other projects," the official said. The five-year agriculture road map covers the period 2012-17.

A high-level meeting, chaired by the state's chief secretary, was held here Wednesday to review preparations for the presidential visit.

Soon after Mukherjee was elected president, Nitish Kumar had invited him to visit Bihar.
