RCE Thiruvananthapuram Holds Kerala School Agri Fest 2019

Since 2010, the Centre for Innovation in Science and Social Action (CISSA), the secretariat of RCE Thiruvananthapuram, has been organising an annual Children’s Agri Science Congress on a specific theme to inspire children to practice agriculture, to see farming as a dignified profession, and to provide them with an understanding of the scientific and social values inherent in agriculture.

Held on 19-20 January, 2019 at Mariyumma Memorial Public School in Kerala, India, the Kerala School Agri Fest 2019 was a continuation of the Okayama Award-winning 'Kerala Balakrishi Sastra Congress'. This year's theme was 'Traditional Knowledge in Agriculture and Climate Resilience', with sub-themes including 'Agro Biodiversity', 'IT in Agriculture', 'Cow-based Agriculture', 'Medicinal Gardens', 'Underutilised Fruits and Vegetables', and 'Innovations in Organic Farming'.
