National Agriculture Day

 Celebrating Indian National Agriculture Day: Honoring the Backbone of Our Nation

On this auspicious occasion of Indian National Agriculture Day, we come together to honour and celebrate the backbone of our nation, our hardworking farmers and the remarkable achievements of the Indian agricultural sector. This day serves as a reminder of the invaluable contributions made by our farmers and their tireless efforts in feeding the nation and driving the economy.

Indian agriculture has a rich history that dates back thousands of years. Our farmers have been practising sustainable and innovative farming techniques, passed down through generations, that have sustained the Indian population and played a vital role in shaping our cultural heritage. Today, we acknowledge their resilience, dedication, and unwavering commitment to nurturing the land and producing an abundance of food for millions.

On the occasion of “Agriculture Day,” we are excited to share that we have embarked on the sowing of the bardhanya mix cropping system. This traditional system, prevalent in rainfed areas before the green revolution, fulfils all the nutritional requirements of farming families and enables crop survival in drought conditions. By reviving this indigenous mix cropping system, we are promoting climate resilience and unlocking its numerous benefits.

The bardhanya mix cropping system offers several advantages that contribute to the overall well-being of farming communities. Firstly, it ensures food security by providing a diverse range of crops that cater to nutritional needs. This system includes CPM crops (Cereals, Pulses, Millets), which are vital sources of sustenance and essential nutrients. Additionally, it promotes nutrition security by incorporating a variety of crops with varying nutritional profiles.

Fodder security is another significant advantage of the bardhanya mix cropping system. Livestock plays a crucial role in many rural communities, and this system ensures a sustainable supply of fodder throughout the year. Farmers can rely on this system to meet the dietary requirements of their livestock, supporting their livelihoods and the local economy.

Furthermore, the bardhanya mix cropping system prioritizes soil health and conservation. It covers the soil for more than nine months, protecting it from erosion, enhancing soil fertility, and reducing weed growth. By promoting natural soil cover, we contribute to the long-term sustainability of agricultural land and maintain its productivity for future generations.

One of the remarkable features of this system is its reliance on monsoon rain. The crops within the bardhanya mix cropping system are designed to thrive in rainfed conditions, reducing dependence on external sources of water. This aspect makes it a sustainable and climate-resilient approach to farming, aligning with our environmental stewardship and conservation goals.

The convenience and efficiency of the bardhanya mix cropping system are notable. It involves one-time sowing and multiple harvests, allowing farmers to optimize their resources and efforts effectively. This system empowers farmers to manage their time and resources efficiently, contributing to increased productivity and income generation.

As we celebrate Indian National Agriculture Day, let us not only honour the efforts of our farmers but also recognize the importance of preserving our traditional agricultural practices. By reviving the bardhanya mix cropping system, we embrace our rich agricultural heritage while promoting sustainable and climate-resilient farming practices.

On this particular day, let’s celebrate the spirit of Indian agriculture, the hard work of our farmers, and the potential for a sustainable and inclusive food system. Together, we can support the growth of our farming community, ensure food and nutrition security, and pave the way for a prosperous and resilient future.
