Nitish greets farmers for setting world record
Patna: Five Bihars farmers were on Tuesday congratulated by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for setting a world record in paddy harvest.
The farmers had produced between 224 and 196 quintal
paddy per hectare this season to beat the previous record of
190 quintal paddy harvested in China.
"All of you have made us proud by breaking the
previous world record of paddy harvest by China," Kumar said.
He also lauded the farmers for using Vermi compost, a
natural fertilizer, for this record production.
Kumar met the farmers, Sugant Kumar, Sri Krishna
Kumar, Nitish Kumar, Vijay Kumar and Sanjay Kumar, at Gosai
Math helipad prior to his departure to Arwal district on the
fourth-leg of the seva yatra and congratulated them for
surpassing the previous record of China.
The Chief Minister directed the Nalanda district
magistrate to send a report to the Indian Council of
Agriculture Research (ICAR) and said that the state government
will also felicitate these farmers.
The Chief Minister asked the farmers to carry on their
good work and set a new world record.
