AMN / CHENNAI

Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu has pitched for diversifying food production by moving away from mono cropping of major cereals, to a system that integrates a variety of food items including small millets, pulses, fruits and vegetables.

Mr Naidu was inaugurating the National Consultation on leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition at the MS Swaminathan foundation here Saturday.

He said, pulses cultivation will not only help in improving nutrient rich food production but also in restoring nutrient value to the soil. The Vice President said, it will also reduce the import burden of nearly six million tonnes of pulses.
