Farmers will be provided with Rs. 900 every month
Madhya Pradesh Government gets Rs. 900 per month which adds up to Rs. 10,800 per year to farmers who raise native cows for natural farming. Apart from that, farmers can make good profits by selling milk. In addition, cow dung and urine can also be used as fertilizer in the fields.
CM Shivraj explained during a program that the farmer who takes over natural farming by raising cows gets Rs. 900 per month from the treasury.
He explained that our planet’s health is deteriorating due to the extensive use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in cow rearing. Because of this, the food and the environment get polluted.
These food and environmental contaminants lead to health concerns.
CM Shivraj said that this year he will practice natural farming on 5 acres of land and recruit people to provide training in natural farming methods.
