President’s Message
Honourable Members of the ISWS
More than 60% population of India is depending on agriculture sector; therefore, Indian agriculture plays a major role in the country’s economy. India may require at least 20 million tons of additional food every year to meet the minimum food and nutritional demands of the growing population, which is expected to be 1.7 billion by 2050. The greatest challenge of the 21st century is to meet the rising food demand while maintaining the sustainability of the natural resources. Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi has repeatedly urged agricultural scientists for doubling the income of farmers by 2022. Weeds are one of the major limitations to reduce the yield hence income of farmers too. Therefore, in order to address the emerging challenges and for doubling farmers’ income over the next two years, Indian Society of Weed Science kept the theme of recently held conference as ‘Weed management for enhancing farmers’ income and food security’. The beginning of New Year 2020 was pleasant for all of us with full of activities and lot of zeal to prepare for the Conference of Goa from 5-7 February 2020. Read More
