Organic farming and vermi compost should be promoted at national-level: CM Bhupesh Baghel

Raipur: Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel
has said that there is a need to promote the production of organic manure and
vermicompost at the national level to encourage organic farming. This would help
in solving the problem of chemical fertilizer shortage in Chhattisgarh as well
as in other states of the country. This would not only improve soil health but
would also provide a better quality of agricultural produce

Baghel said that the COVID crisis had
affected the supply of raw material for production chemical fertilizers, which
led to the shortage of overall supply of chemical fertilizers, said Chief
Minister while addressing the meeting of State-Level Disha Committee
(Development Coordination and Monitoring Committee). This meeting was held at
New Circuit House here on Tuesday to review, monitor, evaluate the progress of various
schemes of central government and to establish better coordination between
the center and the state.

Chief Minister further said in his address that Chhattisgarh is
the only state in the country to have declared support price for the production
of Kodo, Kutki, and Ragi. Arrangements are also being made to procure and market
the millets. Lok Sabha MP Ramvichar Netam, who was present in the meeting,
appreciated the Millet Mission initiative and the program to promote the
production of organic manure and vermicompost in Chhattisgarh.

Baghel said that this meeting has led to
constructive discussions regarding various schemes. The members have given many
important suggestions, which will be considered during the implementation of
the schemes.
