Organization of World Soil Day - 2016 by the KVK, ICAR-IISR, Lucknow at village Ismailnagar (Lucknow)

A farmers' awareness programme towards healthy soil for enhanced and sustained agricultural productivity on the eve of World Soil Day- 2016 was organized by the KVK of ICAR-IISR, Lucknow at village Ismailnagar, Block-Gosainganj, District-Lucknow on December 05, 2016. On this occasion, more than 100 farmers of the area participated in the programme and took keen interest in making their soil more healthy and productive through adoption of carbon sequestration technologies in field crops production. Farmers were told about the Central Govt’s serious concerns on burning of crops residues particularly of rice and wheat, by the farmers. Farmers were also made aware that if crops residues are retained in the fields will certainly boost organic carbon content in the soil and reduce environmental pollution. Four KVK Lucknow scientists namely ; Dr. R.K.Singh, Dr. Y.P.Singh, Dr. Veenika Singh and Mrs. Neelam Singh delivered their talks stressing the need for adoption of green manuring by Dhaincha, application of locally available organic manures in their fields, retention of field crops residues in their fields etc., for making the soil healthy and sustainable for the use of future generation. Farmers were also told about the Hon’ble Prime Minister dream project on “Soil Health Cards” and accordingly, they were also requested to collect soil samples of their fields and get them analyzed from KVK, Lucknow and apply plant nutrients as per need of the soil.
