punjab: Farmers start driving to make agriculture sustainable | Chandigarh News – Indian Times

On the eve of Martyrdom Day in Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, Katin Kisan Union (KKU) held a conference in 12 districts of Punjab to replace the green revolution model with an ecological and sustainable agricultural model for the farmer. .
Speaking at the conference, KKU leaders said that Punjab was in a state of crisis due to air, water and soil pollution and that people were at risk of serious illness. The government is changing the days of sowing or sowing techniques instead of giving serious solutions, this is not a lasting solution. Punjab agriculture model should be tailored to local needs and local conditions. The two crop circles of wheat and paddy should be divided into Punjab and divided into natural zones. Zone-based agricultural, agricultural research centers and agricultural industries should be developed.
Union President Nirbahai Singh Dudike, Vice President Rajinder Singh Dip Singh Wala and other leaders said Punjab will feed 94% lentils. “The area under cultivation may be increased. Similarly, only 2.2 percent of Punjab’s total agricultural land is under horticulture, with only citrus fruits and guava. “Landscaping under fruits and vegetables can increase over time, reducing paddy sowing and growing trees, which in turn is beneficial to our environment and lowers temperatures. Horticulture provides jobs for rural workers in three to seven months. KKU leaders indicated.
He said dairy farming and livestock farming should be encouraged in order to survive the Punjab. Provide river water throughout the year to save groundwater and use pipes to save 30%.
