Besides, the delegation's visit aimed at deliberating on the scope of expanding the collaboration in other crops.

Led by Tina Lawton, head of Rice, Syngenta Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. Singapore, the visiting members held an interactive meeting with PAU vice-chancellor Baldev Singh Dhillon and senior officials, heads and faculty of various departments.

The V-C expressed happiness over the progress of the on-going project and emphasised on the timely application of agro-chemicals in rice. Besides, he stressed on making the farmers aware about the soil testing recommendations, made by the university.

Dr Dhillon suggested that the results of the pilot project should be published in Progressive Farming (English edition) and Changi Kheti (Punjabi edition), the two monthly farm magazines of the PAU.

The company representatives appreciated the last two years' joint journey between Syngenta and PAU, and said that the major objective of their visit to Punjab in general and the university in particular was to see the problems being confronted by the farmers in rice cultivation.
