Media Release

Mangaluru, Sep 3: St Agnes college (Autonomous),as a part of the Agnes Towards Community (ATC) initiative, in association with the Department of Botany, organised a paddy transplantation programme 'From Classroom to Field' on September 2 at Meremajalu, Farangipete.

The programme was organised to motivate the young generation towards agriculture and give them an opportunity to understand the various techniques involved in agriculture.

"At present, rice farming is reduced to a serious extent. We should preserve our relationship with the soil for the next generation and serve as part of an agrarian society," said the local head.

As many as 50 people including the staff of St Agnes College, along with the residents, transplanted two farmlands until evening. It was decided that the yield of the same will be distributed to the needy families.

It was an amazing experience to the students to get in touch with agricultural activity and farming. Focusing on future perspective this activity helped students in gaining more knowledge about paddy cultivation. Students were also exposed to the village setup where they had to cope with the rural atmosphere with minimal facilities and work along with it.
