Actress-turned-politician and BJP MP Hema Malini has said farmers should adopt new agricultural techniques for increasing their productivity. "Defer traditional agriculture and take advise of scientists for good cropping," the MP from Mathura said after inaugurating a "Kisan Mela" followed by "Kisan Goshthi" (seminar) in remote Pentha village of the district on Wednesday.

She asked the farmers to desist from burning the stubble of paddy. The crop residue may be turned into manure and help increase the productivity, she added. She said farmer-centric schemes of the Centre if practised, can help increase production and minimise investments. The BJP MP also felicitated Dr S K Mishra of the Krishi Vigyan Kendra here for helping farmers with new scientific technologies.
