The state government is working on a priority basis for the development of agriculture.
In agriculture, drone technology has been used to increase production and emphasis is placed on increasing farmers’ income and developing agriculture using improved technology.
Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Pranjit Singha Roy said this on Friday after using drone technology to spread pesticides on a farmer’s land in Shalgara village panchayat in Tepaniya block under Gomati district of Tripura.
He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken initiatives to improve the agricultural sector of the country through the use of modern agricultural machinery.
The Agriculture Minister added, “It is also being implemented in our state. Farmers in the state are becoming confident with the provision of agricultural machinery at subsidized rates”.
