The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Agriculture has sought expert and individual views on tackling food security in the face of the growing impact of climate change on crops.

Headed by BJP leader Hukum Deo Narayan Yadav, the panel has invited suggestions within three weeks on subjects such as the need to evolve new varieties of crops that can withstand climatic fluctuation, improved methods of irrigation, popularisation of consumption of crops/fruits that can provide better nutrition, developing indigenous varieties of cattle that can withstand extreme climatic stress, among other things.

After getting the suggestions, the Standing Committee will take oral evidence on the subject, an official release said here on Monday.

“Those who wish to appear before the Committee, besides submitting memorandum, are requested to specifically indicate so,” the release, adding that the Committee’s decision in the regard shall be final.
