Hyderabad I 23 Jan 2018
PROFESSOR Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University (PJTSAU) here has drawn up plans to launch an ‘agri-incubation centre’ to promote start-ups in the agri sector.
The university would also arrange capital for the start-ups incubated in the centre, Vice-Chancellor V Praveen Rao said.
“You have start-ups in every field. But not in agriculture….What we are trying to do is, make the students think innovative,” he told..
Students can launch start-ups in different areas, including organic farming and agri clinics.
Citing some examples, Rao said such start-ups can make products such as turmeric powder (using newer, faster processes), millet breads and noodles.
The incubation centre may come into existence next year, Rao added.
