The Madhya Pradesh government said it will give Rs. 900 per month to farmers rearing indigenous cows. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan made the announcement on Monday while virtually addressing a Niti Ayog workshop on agriculture.

The CM also announced the constitution of the Madhya Pradesh Natural Agriculture Development Board to promote natural farming.

“Desi (indigenous) cows are essential for natural farming. Farmers should rear at least one desi cow. We have decided to provide Rs 900 per month to such farmers. So, a farmer will get a total of Rs 10,800 in a year for a desi cow, “Chouhan said in his address during this workshop.

The MP CM further added that the MP government is going to start special activities to promote natural farming in 100 villages each across 52 districts of the state.

Natural farming activities will start in 5,200 villages in the state with the current Kharif crop season. We are looking for such farmers. So far, 1.65 lakh farmers in the state have shown an interest in natural farming. He said workshops will also be organised in the state to create an atmosphere for natural farming.

The CM further said five full-time workers will be appointed in each block to promote natural farming, and they will be paid for this role.

“Natural farming will be promoted in agricultural fields on both banks of the Narmada river,” Chouhan said.

The new scheme will certainly help farmers and encourage them to rear indigenous cows.
