Compelling reasons why India needs agricultural biotechnology 14.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Food security has improved around the globe over the past five years, but hunger and food insecurity still persist. On its part, India continues to battle huge challenges with regards to its agriculture output. Despite the country's 'Jai-Kisaan' clarion call since the 1960s, Indian farmers have had to surmount huge odds in their bid to eke out a respectable livelihood and feed the nation. And this is reflected in the 2016 Global Food Security Index that is not very flattering to India. Of the 113 countries surveyed and ranked, India ranks a lowly 75th on three important parameters — affordability, availability and quality and safety.

Rise in elephant deaths concerns Forest officials 14.5.2017 deccanherald.com
An estimated 36 elephants died in the last 18 months in Coimbatore and Nilgiris Forest divisions, due to acute water shortage, starvation and man-animal conflict. The major casualties were reported from Nilgiris district, particularly in Mudumalai Tiger Reserve (MTR) range and the number of deaths was an estimate, as it could be more, because some could have gone unnoticed, Forest Department sources said. The acute shortage of water and monsoon failure not only affected the lives of farmers, but wildlife, particularly elephants in Nilgiris ranges, which used to migrate for food and water to Bandipur and Muthanga forests in Karnataka and Kerala respectively, they said. At least 26 elephants have died from March 2016 to March 2017 in areas coming under MTR, Gudalur, Pandalur, Cherampadi and another eight in the last two months due to starvation and dehydration, they said. Six deaths have been reported in the last 15 months, the latest being yesterday, where decomposed bodies of a 12-year-old female ...
