Press Trust Of India  |  Mumbai 

A five-day national-level farmers' meet and exhibition titled 'Krishi Vasant' has been organised in between February 9 and 13, and is likely to be attended by 500,000 farmers from across the country.

Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar told this to reporters here today. The farm exhibition-cum-meet is dubbed as the 'Mahakumbh' of agriculture.



It will be jointly organised by the Union Agriculture Ministry, the Maharashtra government and the industry lobby Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). "Indian agriculture sector has experienced a turnaround. It has seen 3.64 per cent growth rate and we now have 260 million tonnes of food grain that is enough to feed the country and export," Pawar said. The Railways has agreed to subsidise the ticket rates for farmers going to attend the event, by 50 per cent.
