Taking cues from Karnataka, the Telangana State Government has decided to test the fertility of its soil in one crore acres.

Like its peer, the State Government is taking the help of the International Crops Research Institute for Semi-Arid Tropics (Icrisat).

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao held a meeting with Icrisat Director-General Willian Dar and other officials of the Patancheru-based agricultural research institute on Friday evening to prepare a detailed soil fertility map.

“This will go a long way in advising the farmers to go for the right crop that is suitable for their lands. Karnataka has done this effectively. We will also go for the exercise,” the Chief Minister said after the meeting.
