23rd Dec - A Day to Acknowledge the Farmers of India- Popularly known as Kisan Diwas, the National Farmers’ Day is a national occasion in the honor of the former Prime Minister of India Chaudhary Charan Singh.

Integral Institute of Agricultural Science & Technology believes that Agriculture is the most healthful, most useful, and most noble employment of man. Farmers are the backbone of a country and you can’t stand straight if your backbone is broken.

The Day is heartily observed at Integral on the 23rd of December every year, to promote awareness to help and reward farmers for their contribution to society. The various programs scheduled for the day will compel us to think about how farmers grow crops with great difficulty to feed us, while they still remain backward and wretched. It is celebrated on 23rd December as it is the Birthday of Indian farmer's leader late Chaudhary Charan Singh. The Farmer's Day is a program to assess how important is the role of farmers in the social and economic development of a country. They need to be helped in education, training in scientific farming, loan, storage and marketing of their products and many more. The young Integralites understands that knowledge, technology and exposure can and will do wonders to Agriculture Industry and the whole country is needed to work for the cause of farmers.

IIAST awaits the Inauguration of INTAG, a shop of healthy produce of IIAST Farms, this farmer’s day. The products are chemical free which maintains the strictest quality of standard. The Institute of Agriculture Science & Technology looks forward to felicitating the progressive farmers who are the torch bearers for the techniques to be implemented in the farming as per the modern day technology. Various sessions will also be organized with the progressive farmers and students interacting with each other in order to get a glimpse of conventional as well as modern agriculture technologies.

The history of India’s development has been inexorably linked to that of its farmers, and the nation’s growth with that of its agriculture. The granaries in Harappa are the testament to our expertise in agriculture from ancient times. Sophisticated irrigation and water storage systems developed in the Indus Valley civilization around 4500 B.C contributed to a prosperous society. Later Vedic texts also have multiple references to agricultural technology and practices. This development continued through the centuries and today with innovations in agro-processing and biotechnology, agriculture does play a critical role in India’s flourishing economy.
