The Economic Survey came up on January 31, 2022, highlighted government efforts towards helping small farmers and its emphasis towards organic farming and crop diversification. I’m sure government is doing whatever is possible. However Bio has should get it’s due importance to protect the air, water soil and human.
In India, organic farming is not at all now practice. It was there and is the there. Most importantly organic farming is an ethical choice for farmers and consumers. Organically cultivates crops are not just healthy and safe, it is equally environment friendly.
