Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address farmers during the valedictory session of the National Summit on Agro and Food Processing tomorrow at 11 AM at Anand in Gujarat through video conferencing. The three-day Summit which started yesterday is being organized by the Gujarat government with the focus on natural farming.
Farmers will be provided all the information related to benefits of adopting natural farming methods. The summit is being attended by over five thousand farmers with thousands of others connecting virtually from across the country.
The Government has initiated several measures to transform agriculture and increase farmers’ income. It is committed towards ensuring an increase in productivity, so that farmers can maximize their agri-potential. Efforts are underway to promote and support initiatives leading to sustainability of the system, cost reduction, market access and better value realization to farmers.
Zero Budget Natural Farming minimize the dependence of farmers on purchased inputs, and reduces the cost of agriculture by relying on traditional field-based technologies which lead to improved soil health.
