ICAR to undertake major research works on agriculture with World Bank fund



The Indian Council for Agricultural Research ICAR will be undertaking major research works on agriculture with the World Bank fund of Rs 1100 crore this year.

Deputy Director General of the national apex agricultural research body Narendra Singh Rathore said at a convocation function at the Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University in Chennai yesterday.

He said the funds will be allocated to ten each of the premier agricultural and veterinary universities in the country. Mr Rathore said, though India ranks first in milk production in the world, the milk yield per animal is very low as compared to international standards.

He called for research in making available enough fodder for cattle as it remains an area of concern now and also to address the climate change challenges.

The Vice Chancellor of the University Dr S Tilagar in his address said two research centres would be established in Tamil Nadu for research on preserving and promoting domestic bull species.
