Bathinda, July 27

The draft for the agriculture policy of Punjab was discussed on the second day of the natural farming and environment festival of Kheti Virasat Mission (KVM) being held at the community centre in Model Town phase III.

Agriculture experts, including the organic farmers, presented various suggestions to be included in the state agriculture policy draft whose main emphasis should be on rejuvenating the soil, putting an end to the use of pesticides and fertilizers, making adequate infrastructure available to the farmers and making the tillers an important stakeholder in the farming sector and other such issues.
