<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Arunachal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein has advocated the use of remote sensing technology to identify the suitability of land for different crops across the state. He mooted the idea in a meeting with B V Raman Kumar, Chief Executive Officer of Hyderabad-based Remote Sensing Instruments (RSI) here yesterday. Mein said farmers of the state had been blindly cultivating crops without any geomorphological mapping leading to failure of cash crop cultivation in many parts of the state and losses to the farmers, an official statement said here today. He said that remote sensing instruments could be an effective tool for planning in agriculture and horticulture. He requested Agriculture Minister Wangki Lowang to conduct another round of meeting with the officers of RSI and NABARD and get the required data from RSI by letting them conduct land mapping for the state.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
