Most of us have deep family roots, and have an emotional connection to agriculture in India. Whether you are planning to move back, and enter farming, or your family is currently farming in India, or you just want to make a positive impact, this can be a very informative and encouraging session.
Ramoo is an authority on Agricultural policies, Farming practices, and the current Farmers' crisis in India. He can talk about the future of agriculture in India, various issues our farmers are facing, and how we NRIs can be involved, directly or indirectly. Ramoo is also an expert in Low cost farming, Organic farming, and Organic food. So if you are thinking of switching to Organic food he can be a great resource
Tea and snacks will be provided.
