Stressing on the need to fall back on organic or traditional ways of agriculture, Haryana Agriculture Minister OP Dhankar Monday said that the government is promoting usage of bio-pesticides and organic farming and that the farmers are being made aware on usage of chemicals. He said that sampling of soil, water, fruits and vegetables were being done on a regular basis.

Dhankar said this while replying to a question asked by Congress MLA Karan Singh Dalal during the Question Hour on the steps taken by the government to minimise the usage of chemicals in agriculture in compliance with orders of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
