Apart from this, three more training centres will soon be set up at Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Hameti, Jind and Mangiana, Sirsa, respectively,” he added.

He said that to make the farmers aware about this, natural farming will be done in a demonstration field in every block. So far, such demonstration farms have been prepared in five districts.

Emphasis on training and awareness in first phase for natural farming

It was stated in the meeting that to promote natural farming, the state government had launched a portal in April, 2022, on which farmers willing to adopt natural farming can register themselves. In the first phase for natural farming, more emphasis is being given by the government on training and awareness, so that the farmers can understand this method better.

So far, 2,992 farmers have registered themselves on this portal and 1,201 farmers have given their consent to do natural farming during Rabi season. Apart from this, 3,600 soil samples have also been collected and so far, 405 assistant technical managers (ATMs) and block technical managers (BTMs) with 119 progressive farmers have been trained for natural farming; who will work as master trainers to train other farmers.

Haryana is the first state in the country to launch such initiatives and not only this, a plan has also been prepared to ensure that natural farming products are packed directly from the farmer’s fields; to prevent any doubt of genuineness of the product for the customers.
