Department of Biotechnology organised a webinar on the topic entitled "HYDROPONICS in fodder, wheat and paddy production" for all the students of 2nd, 3rd and 4th year on 09-May-2020.
The speaker of the webinar was Mr. Ashutosh Johri (Biotech Alumni 2002-06 batch) having more than 11 years of experience in this area. He highlighted his journey in hydroponics machine development since 2006 when very few machines were available, difficulties faced and success achieved in the form of patents and appreciation awards received from the president of India. His contribution has carved new ways in providing nutritious food to everyone especially animals, economically important to humans. His innovation, creativity and enthusiasm has led him to the path of success and opened the gate for others to take up the journey of hydroponics which not only saves space, time and water but also reduces risks of several kinds. The session was indeed very informative to all. Many questions were asked by the students during the session. The webinar ended with vote of thanks by the head of department.
