Himachal Governor urges farmers to adopt organic farming

Palampur:Governor Acharya Devvrat urged the farmers to adopt zero budget natural farming so that Himachal Pradesh can emerge as a organic state in near future like Sikkim which had been declared as the first organic state of the country.

The Governor was speaking at a seminar on organic farming organized by CSK, Himachal Pradesh Agriculture University, Palampur at Karsog in Mandi district.

He said that it was the need of the hour to promote and adopt organic farming which was possible only when every farmer starts rearing domestic cows. He said that one cow could be helpful in farming 30 acres of land and added that it would improve fertility of the soil, producing maximum yield by using minimum water and getting remunerative price of their product.
