Chemical fertilizer-free status sought for Manipur

By Correspondent

IMPHAL, Dec 21 - A memorandum has been sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declare Manipur a chemical fertilizer-free State by 2024. In the memorandum, Irabot Foundation Manipur (IFM) urged the Prime Minister to preserve the arable land in Manipur, apart from reinstating agricultural land diverted for other uses.

Informing this at a press conference here today, IFM president Thongam Ajit stressed the need of setting up �full irrigation systems by 2022 for agriculture and allied purposes�, considering the major challenges currently faced by the farming community in the State.

Urging the Centre to take urgent steps to protest and preserve �reserve forest areas� and �protected forest areas�, the IFM also demanded setting up of productive bee parks to meet the required needs of honey in Manipur. It also demanded promotion of pisciculture, aquaculture and animal husbandry to promote the economy of the State.
