Haryana: Farmers in 7 paddy-growing districts agree to switch to maize under govt scheme to save groundwater
By Indianexpress 25-Jun-2019
According to the state Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Department, the farmers have formally registered for alternative plantations over 40,000 hectares of land. “It’s a matter of happiness that the farmers have sown maize and alternative crops keeping in view the crisis of groundwater,” Khattar said Monday.
After it emerged that the groundwater level has depleted in 76% area of the state, Khattar had in May launched a pilot scheme ‘Jal Hi Jiwan’. The objective of the scheme is to replace paddy with maize in seven major paddy-growing districts: Ambala, Yamuna Nagar, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Jind, Karnal and Sonipat.
