To save water for our future generations, Department of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Haryana is planning to launch a new pilot scheme. The scheme is for replacement of Paddy by Maize and other crops in 7 dark zone blocks with a target to diversify around 50000 Hectare area from this season. Due to continuous Paddy growing in the State about 1 mtr. water table is depleting per year. Crop diversification through the above scheme is intended to promote technological innovation with sustainable agriculture and enable farmers to choose crop alternatives for increasing productivity and income.
