St Agnes College (Autonomous), Mangaluru, organizes Paddy transplantation Programme

September 4, 2023

Mangaluru: St Agnes College (Autonomous), as a part of the Agnes Towards Community (ATC) initiative, in association with the Department of Botany, organized the paddy transplantation Programme ‘From Classroom to Field’ on September 2, 2023, at Meremajalu, Farangipete.

The programme was organized to motivate the young generation towards agriculture and give them an opportunity to understand the various techniques involved in agriculture.

 ‘At present, rice farming is reduced to a serious extent. We should preserve our relationship with the soil for the next generation and serve as part of an agrarian society,” said the local head.

50 people, including the staff of St Agnes College and the residents, transplanted two farmlands until the evening. It was decided that the yield of the same would be distributed to needy families.

It was an amazing experience for the students to get in touch with agricultural activity and farming. Focusing on the future, this activity helped students gain more knowledge about paddy cultivation. Students were also exposed to the village setup, where they had to cope with a rural atmosphere with minimal facilities and work along with it.
