ICAR-NIANP, Bengaluru to host training program under ‘Winter School’ from Jan 9 to 29, 2024


ICAR-NIANP, Bengaluru, to host a training program under Winter School on ‘Livestock Production, GHG Emissions, and Environmental Pollutants: Mitigation and Bioremediation’ sponsored by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).

By 2050, global demand for livestock products is expected to increase by 60%. The livestock industry is under intense pressure to meet the growing demand for safe, nutritious livestock-derived products. To improve productivity and welfare, animals must be fed adequate, balanced diets free of toxins and contaminants.
