Karnataka agriculture dept increases focus on organic farming
By Nandita Vijay,
Keeping in mind the importance of organic farming, Karnatakas agriculture department has planned to extend the organic village site programme to the hobli level, in order to increase the utilisation of organic manure for crop production.
It is now increasing services to farmers to transfer the latest technical knowledge to the farming community.
These include introduction of high-yielding varieties, imparting training to farmers to improve skills and knowledge to boost the agricultural production and productivity.
The objective of the scheme is to increase the agriculture production and productivity by adoption of farm mechanisation.
