Is the soil health card scheme introduced to improve the economic condition of the farmers by bettering the health of the soil effective?

Decades of skating over environmental concerns have clearly cost us dear. The folly of pursuing better crop yields using chemical fertilisers in an indiscriminate manner has been surfacing lately. “Decades of agricultural abuse using fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides have taken its toll on us. We have been shooting ourselves in the foot by doing it,” says Raman Tyagi, director of Neer Foundation, a Meerut-based nonprofit working on water and agriculture.

Hello,

Sumersible pump is stuck at a depth of 180 ft together with 7 lengths of GI Pipe after working for 7 years. For removing the pump, people are asking for 30000 rupees and are not assuring that the pump will be in working condition after retrieval. Please let me know any safe technique for removing the pump. The pump may have got stuck due to sand accumulation .

Metal plant contaminates groundwater in Kollam

Maha Irrigation Scam report ready

With grazing lands being utilised for development projects, more and more livestock-dependent communities are being impacted and the huge diversity of grazing practices is disappearing.

Pastoralist communities are those that depend primarily on livestock (domesticated animals in an agricultural setting) for their living. India has the world’s highest livestock population with 440 million livestock heads distributed over 100 million households (1) but in recent years, pastoralists have been facing threats to their way of life. At no other time in the past have these communities been fenced off and evicted to this extent from lands that legally and traditionally belonged to them.

Dear good samaritans,

Hope this mail finds you in good cheer.
I was surfing the net to evaluate the possibility of extracting fluorine from my village water and putting it to some good use. I am yet to find one.
But, along came an article https://www.indiawaterportal.org/post/17950 that prompted me to write to you.

We constructed a bore well in Kuppam, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh. The characteristics of the well are as below.

Diameter of the bore well: 6.5 in
Depth of the borewell: 550ft
Casing used: pvc casing 30 ft
Date of construction:May 7th 2009

From 30 to 550ft the presence of a continous rocky layer was see, And water source obtained from 200 to 490 ft. I am planning to install a motor soon. Some doubts regarding the same are:

1. Does the presence of an extended rocky layer affect the performace of the well or yield / life?

I am looking for cost-effective, environmentally friendly solutions to handling of (an agro-waste based, steam-generating 3T/hour boiler) "blow-down" water i.e. water drained from a boiler periodically to prevent scaling of tubes due to increasing concentration of dissolved solids over a period of days.

Any solution involving solar energy would especially interest me, as the area we will be operating in is blessed with a lot of sunny days.
