India’s agriculture moving towards dangerous future
Shah said that India’s agriculture is moving towards a dangerous future. The soil of the country is becoming barren due to the use of chemical fertilizers. Ground water is also becoming poisonous due to the use of excessive chemicals. Our grains have already become toxic, but if water also becomes poisonous in the coming 10-15 years, according to scientists, the number of people suffering from cancer will increase by 50 percent. We have to understand this danger. During this, he addressed more than 1000 farmers of his area through virtual medium. He asked the officials to set a target to ensure that at least 15 farmers do natural farming in every village of Gandhinagar constituency by the end of 2022.

He said that the lack of periodic review of the ongoing agricultural practices since the Green Revolution has led to the present situation. The Home Minister said that the fertilizer capacity of the soil can be increased only by using cow dung and cow urine. Shah said that more than 2.5 lakh farmers of Gujarat have given up the use of chemical fertilizers in their fields in the last two years and now they are doing natural farming.
Officers should encourage farmers for natural farming
He said that the water level in the state has reached 1000-1200 feet below and the natural way of farming can reduce water usage by up to 50 percent. As an MP, I have decided that by 2025 at least 50 percent of the farmers of my constituency will be encouraged to take up natural farming.
