Earlier releasing March 2018 newsletter of the trust, retired Principal District and Session judge Cooch Bihar West Bengal Kanwar Y S Manhas appreciated initiatives taken up by the trust in alleviating sufferings of poor people, especially in a remote area. Kanwar Y S Manhas, who was also chief guest on the occasion, exhorted farmers to shift back to traditional system of agricultural farming and free the soil of earth from vicious cycle of excessive use of toxic chemical pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides. He lamented that excessive use of Urea DAP has spoiled the health of soil and excessive sprays of pesticides, insecticides not only spoil the ecological balance of soil of the earth but also have dangerous effects on health of farmers and ultimately the general public who consume those vegetables with impermissible levels of chemical residues.
Mrs. Pooja Gupta Managing Director of Himalayan Bio Organic Foods Private Limited (Nimbark Foods) assured the farmers to provide all sort of assistance to such farmers as shift to Traditional System of Indian Agricultural Farming and also help in getting certified their land organic and procurement of their produce which generally get better prices in the markets, as people, day by day, are becoming health conscious and demand for organic products is increasing in J&K state.
Captain Lalit Sharma (Retired) Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests and Prof. Anil Bhat from SKUAST asked the agriculture department and food safety organizations to launch a campaign against fruits & vegetables having impermissible levels of toxic & harmful chemical residues. They also lamented about poor condition of river Tawi in Jammu and river Devika in Udhampur. Conservator of Forests Navin Kumar exhorted villagers to at least keep one cow in each household, which not only will provide pure milk to them, but also the cow dung and cow urine which have medicinal values. Cow dung mixed with household wastes can produce best type of organic manure. Likewise, the villagers should install portable bio gas plants in their lands which will not only substitute for cooking gas but also can produce electricity to fulfill their individual household requirements.
