Vadodara, May 13: Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel said the newly inaugurated Centre for Perishable Cargo at the Ahmedabad airport would increase value of agricultural yield and benefit farmers through export of their produce.

Speaking at an agriculture fest held yesterday at Navsari, the Chief Minister emphasised, “Farmers should adopt new trends and shift towards organic farming as it would lead to sustainable farming.

“It would also increase their incomes through exports to countries like US, UK, Russia, Europe and Gulf nations. And as part of this arrangement for exporting produce, this centre has been started,” Patel was quoted as saying in a press release.

The modern perishable cargo complex which has four different temperature chambers to store agricultural produce like fruits, vegetables, is one of the best examples of the government’s commitment towards the confluence of science and agriculture, Patel said.
