Activists to exhort farmers along Gomti to adopt organic methods

LUCKNOW: Gomti activists will teach farmers living along the banks of the river to practise ‘gau-adharit’ (organic) farming. Conservationists say it would serve a dual-purpose. On one hand, it will prevent chemicals used in farming from flowing into the river, while on the other, it will help stray cattle find a home. Farmers who don’t own a cow can adopt a stray and use its dung for manure.
