Jalandhar, March 25
The Kheti Virasat Mission (KVM) will promote natural farming in villages of the Kanjli Wetlands, Kapurthala. With the support of the Punjab State Council for Science and Technology, the KVM will start imparting training to farmers for natural farming in the Kanjli Wetlands from March 26.

KVM associate director Ajay Tripathi said the KVM initially would start training sessions for farmers in six villages, Theekariwal, Zhall Theekariwal, Subhanpur, Dhamm, Kokalpur and Kanjli, of the Kanjli Wetlands. Dr OP Rupela would inaugurate the natural farming training camp on March 26.

KVM executive director Umendra Dutt said poisonous matter gets dissolved in water of the wetlands due to excessive chemical farming carried out in the area. The impact of poison in the fields is catastrophic for many species of native and exotic birds, which used to visit the area. The agro-chemicals are not only responsible for a number of diseases but also make environment harmful for the humans."
