The coaching’s main aim was to indicate the way to handle crop residue to extend soil natural carbon content material and enhance soil well being and fertility.








Dr. YG Prasad, director of ICAR-CICR, suggested the grasp trainees to unfold the information gained from the coaching to six,000 farmers of their areas who apply natural farming.





A one-day coaching program on ‘Crop residue administration’ was not too long ago held on the ICAR-Central Institute for Cotton Research (CICR) in Nagpur, in collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature, India (WWF India). It was attended by farmers and subject staff from the Chhindwara and Nagpur districts, that are collaborating with WWF India on natural cotton cultivation.












The coaching’s main aim was to indicate the way to handle crop residue to extend soil natural carbon content material and enhance soil well being and fertility.

Dr. YG Prasad, director of ICAR-CICR, suggested the grasp trainees to unfold the information gained from the coaching to six,000 farmers of their areas who apply natural farming.

Dr. Blaise Desouza (ICARCICR’s head of crop manufacturing part) gave a chat titled “Restoring soil health – best management practices.” Crop rotation, intercropping, dwell mulching, newspaper mulching, and soil test-based fertilizer suggestions had been all inspired, and farmers had been inspired to conduct soil pattern testing earlier than sowing.

Dr. A Manikandan (soil scientist) made a speech on “Recycling of crop wastes and their benefits – on-farm.” 












A sensible demonstration was held, which included vermicomposting, vermiwash, and biochar manufacturing. During the coaching, the strategy of preparation, the supplies essential for small and large-scale preparation, their utility strategies, and the economics of every technique had been all offered intimately.

Dr. Savitha Santosh (agri microbiology scientist) gave a chat on ‘Improving crop residue high quality.’

Rachna Deshmukh (technical officer, soil science) gave a subject demonstration of a cotton stalk shredder and mulching on a farm, whereas Chandrashekar Mundafale demonstrated the soil pattern technique (technician, soil science).

Dr. Prateeksha Mehra (WWF India’s senior mission officer) gave a top level view of the group’s work. She additionally mentioned the regenerative agriculture (RA) pilot mission within the cotton-growing area of Madhya Pradesh’s Chhindwara district.












The college students got a coaching participation certificates and a coaching content material data brochure on the finish of the coaching. The coaching program was coordinated by Dr. A Manikandan and Dr. Savitha Santosh.
