Guest Speaker Programme

The Geography Department organised a Guest Speaker Programme on 10 June 2020. Prof.Sucharita Sen enlightened the audience with her vast knowledge of agriculture and gave great inputs on the understanding of land resource management. She cleared the doubts of Class XII students on reduction on gender employment, land use pattern, excessive use of chemical fertilizers and percolation of toxic nitrates etc. She spoke at length about subsidies and effects of globalization, farmers committing suicides, market prices and also gene revolution. Her Research experiences of fieldwork gave in-depth knowledge of ground-level realities to the students and the teaching faculty. It was an enriching experience.
