The Directorate of Extension Education of the Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) organized a monthly training camp for the members of PAU Flower Growers Club today. As many as 30 farmers attended the camp, wherein Dr Parminder Singh, Head, Department of Floriculture and Landscaping, explained the raising of healthy flower nursery and cultivation of chrysanthemum, which if grown for commercial purpose can yield economic benefits to the growers. “The use of flowers is no longer confined to religious purpose only; these are being used for interior and exterior decorations at homes, educational institutions, public parks, farm houses, and other places also,” he added.
