  • Zero budget farming expert Subhash Palekar thumbed down the government’s move saying it was a foreign concept and destroys fertility of the farmland

In a serious push to natural farming within the nation, the Agriculture Ministry has proposed to double the allocation for the sector to Rs 1,300 crore yearly.

In a presentation to the Fifteenth Finance Fee, the Agriculture Ministry has proposed to convey extra 25 lakh hectares underneath natural farming within the subsequent 5 years. The present natural farming protection of 28 lakh hectares is a measly 2% of the entire farm land.

The federal government has been selling natural farming within the nation by varied central schemes.

States corresponding to Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Sikkim have boosted natural farming by offering varied incentives and help.

In January 2016, Sikkim was declared India’s first 100% natural state. Regardless of the federal government’s push for natural farming, its adoption has been sluggish. In comparison with a few of the European nations, the entire acreage underneath natural farming is far decrease.

“AtmanirbharBharat means Swadeshi. Natural farming will not be Swadeshi and it destroys the fertility of the land. It’s far dearer than standard farming utilizing chemical fertilizers. The enter value is much increased in case of natural farming. It is past my understanding that whereas the federal government is speaking about Atmanirbhar Bharat it has determined to advertise natural farming. This coverage will not be proper,” Palekar mentioned.

Agriculture coverage professional Vijay Sardana mentioned that there was no dependable information to conclude that productiveness goes up in natural farming. “There is no such thing as a subject in pushing for natural farming however the authorities also needs to spell out its meals safety plan.
