Question: Sir, what has been among the most satisfying steps you have taken for the farmers? I find it commendable that a state never known for its agriculture has kept a growth rate of over 10% for an entire decade!

Name : Mr. Shailendra Singh Rathore, Indore, Madhya Pradesh

 

  • Gujarat is one state when seven months of the year are in drought. We are a State which depends on rain for agriculture. We have only two big rivers which are Narmada and Tapi. But with rain harvesting, technological approach to farming we have achieved a growth of 10% in a decade while the national growth in farming is 3%.  
  • We have the Soil Health Card and tele-consultancy services for agriculture. We have also focused in dairy farming and have taken steps to do cataract operations on animals when other parts of the country are failing to extend of this kind of facility even to human beings.
  • We have associated ourselves in a milk revolution and I am proud to say that the India Army gets milk supply from my state.  In my state in the last 10 years 37 lakh hectare new land has been made cultivable. Industry & Agriculture are both growing simultaneously in Gujarat.
