NEW DELHI: Government on Thursday said it is promoting use of organic fertilizers and studies have shown that farm yields have not fallen where use of chemical fertilizers was restricted.
Rural development minister Birender Singh told Lok Sabha a scheme to empower woman farmers has made positive impact as it supplements their income and use of manures like cow dung is encouraged under the scheme.
