Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is not currently doing any hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. The function was called too early (before the plugins_loaded action) to determine the plugin source. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

On Monday, Punjab finance minister Harpal Singh Cheema inaugurated AccelBreed at Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) in Ludhiana. AccelBreed is region’s pioneering speed breeding research facility which introduce a facility that regulates humidity, light, temperature, which helps in growing wheat and other crops more than before.

Dr. Satbir Singh Gosal, Vice-Chancellor of PAU, will become a “game changer in the plan of feeding 10 billion people till 2050”.He considered AccelBreed as a symbol of cutting edge technology but he has a much more hopes on AccelBreed on future research  on agriculture in Punjab. Considering the PAU’s  innovative drive he addresses to expand the vision of speed breeding from staples to sugarcane, potato and fruits.

Gosal expresses the protocol created by AccelBreed will make the wheat yield in 60 to 65 days. Similar protocols are being tested for yield of rice, brassica and pea.

Dr. Parveen Chhuneja, director, school of agricultural biotechnology, gives detailed information about speed breeding facility. She also mentioned that AccelBreed has around 541.87 square meters and houses with  eights controlled chambers. AccelBreed is funded by India’s Department of Biotechnology.

The technique will boosts automated systems regulating environmental factors to achieve 5-8 generations annually.
