Women members led by Balangir Zilla Parisad Chairman Bharati Mahanand on Saturday broadcasted paddy seeds at a formal function of the district level Krushak Dibas held on the occasion of Akshay Tritiya at the Rajendra Krushi Farm at Larkipali.
“A woman prepares everything required for the Akshay Tritiya festival and then the male member joins. To give recognition to the invaluable service of the women folk in agriculture, today I, along with other women, broadcasted seed,” observed ZP Chairman Mahanand.
The indiscriminate use and application of chemical fertiliser and insecticide has polluted soil, water and air. As a result, people after consuming the food are facing many health hazards. Hence, it is time, we began traditional paddy cultivation without use of chemical fertiliser, said Mahanand.
The Ahinsha Club Bhuti Bahal was awarded at a national level function recently for its effort to preserve and promote traditional paddy seed cultivation, Mahanand added.

Among others, Deputy Director of Agriculture Sridhar Das and other officials spoke.
