ISSUES FOR CONSIDERATION Development of Yellow Rust Resistant and Terminal Heat Tolerant varieties for wheat. Frost resistant varieties of Mustard. All districts should be included under NFSM (Wheat). Procurement of Summer Moong on MSP by Govt. agencies should be ensured. Infrastructure for R&D on climate change in SAUs needs to be strengthened. 49
