Bihar plans steps to boost organic farming

PTI Patna | Updated on May 22, 2011

The Bihar Government has decided to invite farm scientists from across the world to popularise organic farming in the State.

“The Government has decided to invite experts from France, England, Cuba and some European nations for international seminar in June at Patna,” the Principal Secretary Agriculture, Mr A.K. Sinha, told PTI today.

The June 22-24 meet is aimed at exploring how organic farming can be promoted in context of Bihar's ecology. Mr Sinha added that besides agriculture scientists, people engaged in manufacturing of vermicompost and international agencies granting approval to its production have also been invited. The effort is part of preparation of a progressive agriculture road-map for the State for the next five years, he added.

While popularising chemical-free farming, utmost care would be taken that productivity and profit are not compromised, he said.
