Punjab govt bats for judicious use of fertilisers
The Punjab government today directed the agriculture department to intensify the efforts to make farmers aware about the judicious use of fertilisers.
Additional Chief Secretary (Development) Viswajeet Khanna said that instructions have been issued to officials of agriculture and farmers welfare department to ensure disseminating requisite information regarding use of fertilisers judiciously at the grassroots level so that the input cost of farmers could be reduced.
An awareness campaign should be launched to motivate farmers in this regard by organising Kisan camps, he said.
