A four-member delegation led by Siebe Schuur, Counsellor for Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality from the Embassy of the Netherlands in India, called on HAU Vice-Chancellor K P Singh here on Monday, a statement said.
Siebe Schuur assured the university to support its efforts being made for management of crop residue, particularly, paddy straw.
A large number of farmers burn the paddy straw which creates the problem of environmental pollution.
The University has also got a project worth Rs 4 crore from the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) to develop suitable technologies for crop residue management and popularize the available methods and machinery among the farmers.
