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.

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.

Report on illegal groundwater usage vague, says NGT

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.
