Vijayawada (AP), Aug 24 (ANI): Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu inaugurated the horticulture exhibition named “Udyana 2018”. The horticulture exhibition focused on organic products, promoting zero based natural farming. Arrangements were made to create awareness among farmers about smart cultivation. Scientists advised farmers how to yield good profit out of horticulture. The state government is planning to increase horticulture to 100 lakh acres in the state. This program is aimed at achieving that target. While addressing the gathering, CM Naidu said, “Today our farmers are confident that farming is also profitable. Recently, many changes were seen in food habits. In our state diabetes patients have increased. People now want to consume more vegetables and fruits than rice. I gave much priority to agriculture and water. Water is big problem in Andhra Pradesh. Half of the state is suffering from floods, half of the state suffering from drought”.
