Use technology to conserve forests
Rajamahendravram (East Godavari District): Chief Forest Conservator (Research and Computer Science) Chief Ajay Kumar Naik said field-level forestry staff should thoroughly study the forest cover of their area and delimit the boundaries scientifically. On Saturday he visited the AP State Forestry Academy (APSFA) and met with officials and apprentices.
On this occasion, he said that aggression can only be detected when it is possible to scientifically identify the limits. He called on everyone to recognize the grave responsibility of protecting the forest area and preventing invasions.
He talked about how to use science and technology in the field in terms of forest study and demarcation. APSFA Director JSN Murthy said the academy was training forest christening officers and section officers on forest area study methods. He said that if the knowledge learned here is applied in duty, it will be possible to protect forests through information technology. Rajahmundry Forest Chief Conservator S Sri Saravanan, Deputy Directors of MV Prasadarao Academy, V Srihari Gopal, K Mohanarao, D Phanikumar Naidu, DFO (Wildlife Management) C Selvam, State Forestry L Bheemaiah, Deputy Forestry Dr. NV Uvaram San Prasad ,, and others participated. PCCF (Research and IT) AK Naik appreciated the conservation of rare, endangered and threatened plant species in the shade network of the Regional Forest Research Center as part of the forest research. Local officials showed him the plants that were kept in the shade net. Naik suggested that endangered plant species should be widely cultivated here and replanted in their respective forests to increase their numbers. The research center should try to prepare quality seeds and distribute them to all divisions. He suggested that different varieties of fruit species grown in the forest should also be developed with research.
