BHOPAL: A 3-day National Organic Festival was inaugurated by Zila Panchayat President Sampatiya Uikay at Mahatma Gandhi Stadium in Mandla on Saturday. During the festival, farmers’ symposium will be held on organic and traditional farming and organic food. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will conclude the festival on October 20.

80 per cent farming in Mandla district is done through organic method. The need is that these 80 percent farmers are selected and made experts in this field.

Such farmers have been invited to Organic Festival, whose organic product business can be linked with traders and marketing system is strengthened. It is matter of pride that tribal-dominant Mandla and Dindori districts have been selected at the national level for propagating organic farming.

Various scientists will inform farmers about different organic farming methods during the 3-day event. After learning these methods, farmers will make agriculture a profitable occupation as per wish of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

Some new techniques have to be adopted for taking more yield in limited land in tribal areas. Farmers will learn to use new techniques through Kisan Jaivik Mela and increase their production. It is hoped that Mandla district will succeed in giving identity to organic farming throughout the country.

For this, strategy of organic farming has been chalked out to ensure resources management, technical development, wide publicity and research for increasing production to attain growth rate equal to progressive states.
