"International Wheat Seminar at Goa"
Communication Objective: Purpose of the conference was to communicate that wheat and wheat products can be a source of income in various ways. Wheat system has a number of elements ranging from science & research, cultivation and all aspects of farm practices, post-harvest movement, storage and trade, processing, production and marketing of food ready-for-consumption. Wheat can also promote baking industry. Global wheat production and trade was one of the important highlights of the seminar.
A large number of Indian people depend upon wheat cultivation for their livelihood. Increasing trend in changing food habits following the robust economic growth has also brought in focus the issue of production of quality of wheat for food and nutritional security. Attempt is being made to bring about an open environment for mutual understanding of local and global issues and pressures that are being faced by this community.
