Yogi Govt promotes organic farming, afforestation along banks of Ganga

Lucknow, May 23 (UNI) The Uttar Pradesh government is promoting organic farming and afforestation along the banks of river Ganga in order to make the sacred river cleaner, free of pollution caused by chemical fertilisers and toxic pesticides and ensure its uninterrupted flow, officials informed on Monday.
Moving a step further from the initiative launched in this regard during its first term, the Yogi Government seeks to encourage organic farming within a radius of 10 km on both the banks in 27 districts through which the Ganga passes in the state, officials said here on Monday.
Yogi 2.0 has set an afforestation target on 6,759 hectares along the banks of Ganga spread over 503 places in different districts through which the river Ganga flows in the next six months. This will not only help in increasing the forest cover and improving the environment, but also prevent soil erosion thus reducing severity of floods in these areas. The government has already launched a plantation drive in Kasganj and some other areas in this context.
