Inaugurating a 6-day workshop on Zero Investment Natural Farming, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the idea of natural farming on zero investment is very noble.

The CM wants to link agriculture universities in Uttar Pradesh with the zero investment natural farming technique.
“There are 75 districts and four agriculture universities in the state. We will link the zero investment natural farming with all four agriculture universities. We have either established Agricultural Science Center in every district or are in the process of establishing them. These agriculture science centres will be very helpful for technique and research of zero investment natural farming,” Adityanath said.
