The university is planning to provide a platform at the mela where farmers from Karnataka and other States will be able to learn from one another'sexperience, as well as innovations in different crops.

600 stalls

As against the previous year's 450 stalls, the mela will now have 600 stalls.

The university has requested Union Food Minister Sharad Pawar to inaugurate the mela, which would showcase recent crop varieties, the latest innovations, technologies and recent trends in farming and allied sectors.

Exhibitions

A national agricultural organic exhibition and a national agricultural machinery exhibition will be held at the mela.

The highlight of the mela is that the university will honour two innovative farm youths — a young man and a young woman — each from every taluk. Such a programme has been taken up to encourage farm youth to continue to remain in the farming sector as agricultural operations, especially food production, are bound to be affected if migration of farm youth to urban areas was not checked.

Besides, 50 stalls showcasing technologies on food and value-added products are being set up.

Another interesting feature is that farmers would get to see a crops museum which would have a live demonstration of 20 to 25 crops on a single plot with an area of about five acres.

For details, including setting up of stalls, call 080-23516353 or 9986663132.
