Along with this, a conversation with the PM was organised in which, two farmers from the state got the opportunity to converse with the PM. One was Janardan Bhat from Puttur and the other was a farmer from Tumakuru. The district level webcast was organised at the Directorate of Gear Research, Mottettadka.

“I am a small farmer who cultivates cashew nuts, banana, pepper and arecanut. Those in the vicinity of my property are also small farmers. Prime Minister, the various programmes that you have implemented have been useful for the farmers. In that too, urea fertilizer with need coating and crop insurance have been very useful. The newly implemented ‘Kisan Samman’ programme too is useful for farmers. May even more useful programmes be implemented for the farmers,” said Janardan Bhat in his conversation with the PM. He thanked the PM for bringing out good programmes for the development of cultivation.
