TS Riar, coordinator of the club, said the experts stressed on minimum support price of different commodities, effects of climate change on agriculture and production of medicinal mushroom.
In addition, the participants were apprised of curative measures to prevent joint pains, he added.
“Such meetings are very important, as they create perfect platform to exchange ideas and opinions on improving agricultural activities,” said a participant.
Besides monthly training, a camp of women's wing of the club was also organised at Chakkar village near here, where farm women participated in large numbers.

“The participant showed enthusiasm at the camp and suggested us to conduct such camps on a regular basis,” said Rupinder Kaur.
