Among others, Prof. BN Hazarika (Dean), officers from PMC, admin officers and HoDs participated.

While sharing her views and suggestion, DC Dr. Kinny Singh emphasized on vermicomposting as an important component of organic farming and earthworms/ vermin-worms as real friends of the farmers and expressed hope that good planning and efforts of officers and public as a whole we could transform East Siang District into an Organic District. She instructed the admin officers to be pro-active and conduct survey of utilization (sale/use) of chemical fertilizers and to submit reports immediately so that appropriate step could be taken up for better tomorrow.

 

Stating segregation at source essential, the DC said Segregation makes the recycling of the waste easier. This practice of waste segregation could be done by keeping two dustbins at home/source.
