In a bid to help build knowledge around biosecurity treatment, a three-day training programme was organised by the officials from Australia's Department of Agriculture and Water Resources here recently.
The programme was conducted to provide a new treatment option to deal with agricultural wastes to avert biosecurity risks and meet the importing country requirements for horticulture export.
Highlighting the value in such cooperation between two countries, Australia's High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu said: "This initiative enables Australia to work closely with the Indian government to support harmonising standards and technical requirements, and ultimately will assist India in its aim to increase its agricultural export trade."
Around 30 Indian officials from the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare, Agricultural Products Export Development Authority along with that of state governments and exporters participated in the programme organised on March 12.
