Dr Shehzad Basra, professor and chair man of crop physiology at University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, said here on Friday that visa problems are a constraint in the frequent exchange of ideas and techniques relating to agriculture between experts of India and Pakistan. He was speaking on the second day of the two-day international conference at Baba Farid Group of Institutions.


"Exchange of ideas leads to progress of every nation; it will motivate farmers of both the countries," said Dr Basra.

Sharing the experience at the conference with HT, he said, "Yesterday some farmers from villages of Bathinda came to meet me and I shared some techniques with them, which they have assured to apply in the coming season. On the other hand, if our progressive farmers will get an opportunity to meet experts from India, it can be beneficial to them also.”
