Pre Event Description :
To mark the ‘World Soil Day’ and ‘Pre Rabi Campaign’, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Nyoma, SKUAST-K, organised an awareness programme on 5th of Dec. 2018. Dr. Sonam Spaldon (Scientist, Vegetable Science) said, ‘Be the solution to soil pollution’ campaign for 2018, aims to raise awareness and call people to stop soil pollution. These days pollution is a worry and soil is also affected. Soil pollution is a hidden danger that lurks beneath our feet. 1/3 of our global soils are already degraded. Yet we risk losing more due to this hidden danger. Soil pollution can be invisible and seems far away but everyone, everywhere is affected. With a growing population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, soil pollution is a worldwide problem which degrades our soils, poisons the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. Dr. Maheshwar Singh, Head, KVK Nyoma, gave a detail presentation about the package and practices of various Rabi crops that are actually grown in summer in Changthang.
