Patna: The Indian Council for Agriculture Research (ICAR) has applauded the agricultural road map of Bihar and appealed to other states to follow the model, state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Sunday.

"According to ICAR, other states can become self-reliant in food production if they follow Bihar model," Kumar said.

ICAR had prepared a pattern of cultivation so that a family could survive in only one hectare of land by integrated system of agriculture, he said, adding Bihar would give a serious thought to it.

Referring to the use of fertilisers, he asked farmers not to use too much chemical as it harmed the fertility of land.

Kumar was speaking at a meeting after inaugurating 'Farmers' school and integrated farming system' here.
