A National Seminar on "Harnessing the Potential of panchabhutas (tatvas) for Sustainable Climate Resilient Rainfed Agriculture" was inaugurated on 28th September 2022 at ICAR-CRIDA in association with Bharatiya Agro Economic Research Centre, New Delhi, and Indian Society of Dryland Agriculture, Hyderabad in a Hybrid mode. About 300 stakeholders including scientists, research workers, farmers and students participated in the National Seminar. The event was initiated by lighting the lamp by the dignitaries as a symbol of bestowing knowledge eternally.

Dr. K. Sammi Reddy, Head and Organizing Secretary, National Seminar explained the purpose of the seminar. The current seminar is the eighth one among the series of fourteen seminars under the Sufalam series. Dr V.K. Singh, Director, ICAR-CRIDA welcomed the guests of honour and emphasized the importance of Panchabhutas viz, Kshiti, Pawak, Sameer, Jal and Gagan in sustainable rainfed agriculture. He further mentioned that crop production is essentially harnessing of sun's 'energy', by plants growing in 'soil' using carbon dioxide from 'air', and 'water'. Chief guest Pujya Swami Shitikantananda Ji, Ramakrishna Math, Hyderabad mentioned that panchabhutas are never inanimate and are the forces controlled by the deities. Soil is not a resource but a legacy that we inherited from our ancestor and to be handed over to the future generations safely. He urged the farmers to decrease the use of pesticides as it involves violence against beneficial insects like bees and butterflies and advised them to follow and promote non-chemical agriculture.
