Improving Oilseed Production (E)
"In this episode we explore oilseeds, a critical crop that gives us edible oils, one of our biggest imports. We focus on the soya and the groundnut – to see how research and innovation can help improve our quality, yield and processing techniques. We travel to two premier scientific institutions in India doing work on soya to create hardier, drought resistant varieities, with improved yields. We see how Indian companies have come up with environmentally friendly pesticides that helped us with a range of crops like the groundnut. Watch how science propels our Atmanirbhat Bharat vision in improving our output of oilseeds in Science for a Self-Reliant India."
