Manohar Lal Khattar, the chief minister of Haryana, said on Sunday that a subsidy of Rs 25,000 will be provided to buy an indigenous cow for organic farming. Additionally, he said that farmers will get four drums free of charge to use in Jeevamrut solution preparation.

"Changing eating habits is the primary goal of natural farming, which requires us to adopt the ideas of food and medicine. The fields and the manufacturing of food grains have both become poisonous as a result of the usage of chemical fertilizers. We should commit not to consume or plant poison. The only alternative is natural farming. On 50,000 acres in the state, we want to encourage natural farming.” The CM presided over a state-level review meeting on natural farming held at Dr. Mangal Sen Auditorium. "We would grant a subsidy of Rs 25,000 to farmers holding 2 to 5 acres registered on the portal who voluntarily adopted natural farming," he added.

The CM said the AATMA scheme would fix the poisonous food grains being produced in the fields due to the careless use of chemical fertilizers. He was speaking to assistant technical managers (ATMs), block technical managers (BTMs), and farmers associated with the Agricultural Technology Management Agency (AATMA) of the Union government.

The first state in the country to go entirely to natural farming is Sikkim. Additionally, there is plenty of activity going on in MP, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and HP, he claimed.

The CM instructed the Additional Chief Secretary of the Finance Department over the phone to release the monthly honorarium to the ATMs and BTMs with immediate effect after learning that it had not been paid for the last six to seven months. He stated that even the village watchman and sanitation worker's wages have to be paid by the seventh of every month.

The CM said that 1,253 farmers in the state had voluntarily enrolled on the portal set up by the Agriculture Department to adopt natural farming, accompanied by Minister of Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare JP Dalal.

Khattar further said that since natural farming had to be carried out by nature's rules, progressive farmers would now be called naturalist farmers. He praised the Governor of Gujarat, Acharya Devvrat, for giving the Prime Minister a draft of natural farming and for providing land for the Natural Farming Training Institute at Gurukul Kurukshetra.
