Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal, while taking Prime Minister, Narendra Modi's vision forward, has directed to conduct soil test of 25 lakh acres of land in the current financial year on priority basis so that every farm is a healthy farm. The Chief Minister was presiding over the review meeting of the Soil Health Card Scheme here today.It is noteworthy that the Chief Minister had made announcements in this regard to benefit the farmers during his budget speech. The Chief Minister said that soil health cards should be issued to farmers after checking every acre of agricultural land in the state so that farmers avoid unnecessary use of fertilizers and add nutrients to the land as required. This will not only increase the fertility of the land, but it will also be beneficial for the farmers. The Chief Minister also directed the officers of the Agriculture Department to prepare a year-long calendar in which dates are fixed for making farmers aware through soil testing, Kisan Sabha and exhibition etc.

This will include information regarding the amount of soil fertility, nitrogen, organic carbon, zinc and phosphorus etc. He said that after the card is made a plan to create awareness among farmers about the card should be formulated as well. The card will also hold information about which soil is deficient in which nutrients and by fulfilling the deficiency, farmers will be able to take maximum benefit from the cultivation of which crop. He said that the soil fertility map of every village would also be prepared from this test, which would also facilitate in giving advice to the farmers.
