Lucknow: The Yogi Adityanath-led government in Uttar Pradesh would send farmers to ‘Gurukul’ for training in organic farming. Providing Vedic education, these ‘Gurukuls’ would apprise farmers about organic agriculture and the means adopted for it during ancient times. Besides UP, the ‘Gurukuls’ of Haryana would also be roped in the process of imparting training to the farmers.
Yogi govt has planned organic farming on 1 lakh hectare area.
The UP Government has planned to have organic farming in at least one lakh hectare area in the state this Rabi season. Besides, it would develop clusters of organic farming at block levels from next year. According to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the biggest challenge before agriculture is getting maximum produce at low cost. “Low cost pesticide free organic farming could be the best solution for it. If scientists and experts work in this direction, the farmers of UP could get good income,” the CM said. Adding further, he said that to promote this type of agriculture, the state government has formed a board.
