If you have always wanted to know how to grow vegetables and fruits in pots in your balcony, the 40th edition of the annual ‘Krishi Vigyan Mela’ is the place to be.

The three-day exhibition that started on Thursday at the Indian Agriculture Research Institute (IARI) at Pusa is a platform for farmers to learn about advances in technology and interact with scientists.

City dwellers can buy nutra bread and purple bread fortified with anti-oxidants such as red capsicum and black carrots, and radishes, broccoli, brussels sprouts and other veggies weighing five kg. Also on offer is basmati and other grains.
