Visit to the Festival of Innovation & Entrepreneurship (FINE)
The students of B.Sc.(Hons.) Agriculture visited an exhibition of the Festival of Innovation & Entrepreneurship (FINE) at Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi on 20.03.2018. The students got the opportunity to see and experience the innovative projects made and displayed by progressive farmers, students of national institutes and schools. The students were very much enthusiastic about the innovations displayed. They interacted with the experts and presenter present in the stalls and gathered information, knowledge and ideas for preparing new/modified projects. They were highly fascinated, especially by Solar Hand Weeder and Honey Extracting Machine designed by progressive farmer from UP and different varieties of brinjal developed by one innovative farmer. Some of the students got registered themselves for organ donation. In the fair, there were stalls on which modern technologies and machineries with sensors were displayed that would be very useful in agriculture and allied fields. The students also collected literature related to projects and sample seeds of varieties displayed there in the fair. Almost all the projects were related to agriculture in one way or the other, which ultimately upgraded the knowledge of participating students. This visit will definitely help in starting their own entrepreneurship after the degree program.
