Shimla, September 2

Governor Rajendra Vishwanath Arlekar today said natural farming not only helped increase the fertility of land but also paid good returns to farmers.

The Governor was speaking at a meeting of the state project implementation unit under the Prakritik Krishi Khushal Kisan Yojana at Raj Bhavan, today. "The results of natural farming are being seen on the ground and benefits are now becoming evident to farmers," he said. About 1.30 lakh farmers were associated with the practice.

Arlekar said he was not a farmer but had been promoting the system for a long time. "I also met Subhash Palekar and got information about the farming method from him. By adopting this, the farmer could get different crops from the same land throughout the year," he said.

The practice was also important in protecting desi cow. The Governor said land holding in Himachal was very small and by adopting the method, the farmers would get high yield at less cost.

Agriculture Secretary Ajay Sharma spoke about various schemes being implemented by the state government for the benefits of the farmers.
