SRINAGAR, JULY 26: Four days off-campus training programme on Insecticide Act 1968 concluded here today.

“The training gave an opportunity to the participants to transfer the training contents to other field functionaries for better outcome of results”, an official of Agriculture Department said.

According to Director, Agriculture, SA Andrabi the course was designed to regulate the import, manufacture, sale, transport, distribution and use of insecticide, with a view of preventing risk to human lives.

He added the main concept of this course is to avoid the use of spurious Insecticides/Pesticides and handle strictly with unlawful dealers so that farmers and growers are provided with quality products to boost their production.
