Wide-ranging dissemination of agricultural information to the grassroots farmers through effective utilisation of mass media is vital for boosting the existing farm outputs, speakers have said at a seminar in Rajshahi city. They viewed that an effective and rapid dissemination of the latest agricultural information to the farmers through newspapers, television, and community radio and information communication technology could increase crop production to ensure national food security. The observation came at the daylong seminar styled ‘Effective Utilisation of Mass Media for Agricultural Information Dissemination’, held in NCDP conference hall on Sunday afternoon. The Intensification of Agriculture Information Service (IAIS) in 10 Agriculture Regions Project of the Agriculture Information Service under the Ministry of Agriculture organised the seminar, according to BSS.
