Mehbooba for bridging lab-field gap to attain optimum results in agriculture

JAMMU: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today stressed on the need to bridge the gap between research laboratories and agriculture fields to attain optimum results in the farming sector.

Addressing the sixth convocation of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology in Jammu, Mufti said agricultural in the state is comparatively better compared to other states, but there is a need to look into the reasons for the sector not performing up to the expectation.
