Know which concept the Modi Government to follow to double the income of the farmers!

JULY 09 (WTN) - Prime Minister Narendra Modi always says that doubling the income of the farmers is one of the goals of his government. In the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, Narendra Modi had assured the farmers of the country that his government would make every effort to double the income of the farmers. But as it is known today, cultivating in India has not been as easy as it was at any time.

The cost of farming is increasing day by day, due to which farming has become less profitable for the farmers. But the Modi Government has assured the farmers of the country that government will endeavor to double the income of the farmers, but now the question arises, what is the ultimate way, on which the income of the farmers can be doubled?

If you look at the first full budget of the second term of the Modi Government, then Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had mentioned about Zero Budget for farmers' interest in her budgetary speech. When the finance minister referred to Zero Budget farming in her budget speech, once again discussions about Zero Budget farming started in the country. What is the Zero Budget farming? Does not this cost in cultivating by this method? Can the income of farmers to be doubled by adopting Zero Budget cultivation? Let's try to find out the answers to these questions.

In fact, Zero Budget farming does not mean that farmers will not be able to afford any cost to cultivate this way. Rather Zero Budget farming means that the farmers should not use chemical fertilizers, hybrid seeds and chemical pesticides in cultivating. That is, you can ask the concept of natural way cultivating as Zero Budget cultivating.

In the concept of Zero Budget farming, manure compost made from animal dung in place of chemical fertilizers is used for crops. At the place of chemical pesticides, Gaumututra (cow urine) and neem are used. Hybrid seeds are not used in this kind of farming. The claim is that by using natural manure and pesticide in this way, the crop results good, because it does not cause disease in the crop, and chemical fertilizers and pesticides are not used, so it is also beneficial for the health.

For your information, let you know that the credit for introducing cultivation at Zero Budget Concept goes to Subhash Palekar, a farmer Maharashtra's Vidarbha region. It is claimed that he cultivated without use of the fertilizer and the insecticide, and he also benefited from it. Subhash Palekar was awarded with Padma Shri in the year 2016 for the concept of his Zero Budget farming. Influenced by Subhash Palekar's Zero Budget farming, immediate Chandrababu Naidu Government of Andhra Pradesh also appointed him the Agricultural Adviser of Andhra Pradesh State.

According to the information, the Modi Government is going to promote Zero Budget farming to double the income of the farmers, and reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The Modi Government is going to give a lot of facilities, assistance and advice to the farmers to introduce farmers' to the concept of Zero Budget farming. Those, working on the Zero Budget farming concept, claim that farmers will not need to take loans for fertilizer and pesticide from market. Naturally, when the farmers cultivated by a natural way without taking loan, then farmers’ crop would be good, and farmers’ income would also increase.

The concept of Zero Budget farming is not new. This kind of farming had been in use in India for centuries. It has been observed that the use of chemical fertilizers and chemical pesticides has increased very rapidly in the country for the past 40 years in the greed of high yielding crops. Farmers have to spend a lot of money in purchasing manure and pesticide. On the other hand, the use of chemicals in farming has also adversely affected human health. In this way, focusing on all these things, the Modi Government is going to promote the concept of Zero Budget farming. Now let’s wait and observe how much farmers adopt this concept?
