Organic Farming : Farmers in Andhra Pradesh will get Organic Farming Training

The Andhra Pradesh government decided to train 1.5 lakh farmers in organic farming in the coming next three years, a senior agriculture department official said.

P Vijaya Kumar, Principal Secretary, Agriculture, Andhra Pradesh said that As part of the scheme, 5,000 farmers will be given training between January 24 to 31 at Kakinada by the well-known organic farming expert, Subhash Parulekar.

The state government aims to train about 1.5 lakh farmers in the next three years in organic farming. The trained cultivators will be given a certificate declaring them as organic farmer. The prime concept of this project is to reduce expenditure in agriculture and to raise the income for the farmers.

The purpose of this project is to promote natural manures like cow dung in farming and to eliminate consumption of chemical fertilisers and pesticides.
