Tags: State News

Ashok Gehlot led Rajasthan government is trying to replicate the farming model of Rajasthan’s Banswara district in other parts of the state.

  • The model has created new livelihood sources and brought food security to indigenous tribal communities. 
  • It enabled the farmers to meet their daily food necessities by growing fruits and vegetables at a low cost. 
  • The integrated system has also reduced the tribals’ dependence on market and improved nutritional status of the local population.
  • The  model entails community ­managed seed system, which has facilitated diversification of crops, adoption of organic farming, manure, medicines and pesticides and establishment of vermicompost units at agricultural fields. 
  • The locally prepared organic manure is used  for growing maize, wheat, urad and other crops
