20 December 2021: Under the guidance of Swami Ramdev and leadership of Acharya Balkrishna along with the efforts of about 150 scientists of Patanjali Research Institute (PRI), a comprehensive plan has been prepared to solve the problems related to Indian farmers and agriculture. This has been presented in the book ‘Nav Harit Kranti-An Agro Vision’. A round table discussion was presided over by Balkrishna in which through this compilation, the future plans for solving the basic problems related to agriculture, simplifying agriculture and increasing the income of farmers was considered. Speaking on the occasion, Ramdev said that the Patanjali has future plans to uplift farmers’ status. Beginning from organic farming training to organic fertilisers, high quality seeds and minimum priced fertilisers will be made accessible to the farmers. Now even in the technical field, Patanjali has developed technological interventions in form of apps to help the farmers, for geo-mapping of land, geo-fencing and weather forecast so that basic essential information will be made easily assessable to all farmers. Balkrishna said that Patanjali has worked to diminish the gap between farmers and government. If ‘Nav Harit-Kranti An Agro-Vision’ is implemented on ground then it will definitely benefit the farmers. Through this agro-vision our Prime Minister’s aim of soil testing, agriculture digitalization and PM-Kisan Scheme will be implemented to benefit the farmers. Secretary and Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) director general Trilochan Mohapatra said that Patanjali has strong infrastructure, a strong team of agricultural scientists and the passion to do something for the farmers. Its future plans in the field of agriculture are commendable. NITI Aayog member Ramesh Chand said that NITI Aayog has not done as much work in one year as done through this book.
