Centre may incentivise traditional farming methods like yogic farming, gou mata kheti: Report

The government is planning to give incentives to farmers who take up traditional farming methods like yogik farming, rishi krishi, and gou mata kheti, according to a report by Mint. 

These happen to be ancient practices with little or no scientific evidence to prove they are beneficial, the report stated.

The scheme will be rolled out under the Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY), Mint reported, adding that farmers who adopt these methods will be eligible for assistance of Rs 48,700 per hectare for a three-year period from the government.
